    Are you saying you want a narrower tire?

    http://WWW.junkyrustybikes.net have these in 26x1.95 for $20 per pair

    Or if you want even narrower they have them in 1.50 as well.


    Or if you wanted a wider slick check out 3G Bikes' Hoggy-G at 24x3.45

    My personal favorite is Tioga City Slickers 26x1.95"
    Very rounded sidewall to tread transition, quality rolling and bead up

    You can match them to 1.25" and 1.5" sizes too. I have many pair (to my wife's dismay :lol:)

    CSWest bikes has them:

    Otherwise Kenda K838 have 26x 1.95 for about the same price
    They have a wider sidewall to tread transition
    IMO they don't bead up as well or ride as smooth

    Hope this helps
    Good Luck

    You bet, Glad it helped :D
    CSwest also carries the 1.25 size like the front tire on the 'Liner
    Another source is Niagara Cycle Works but the must be sold out of the 1.95
    BTW the 1.25 weighs in at 390g
    1.50 weighs in at 530g
    1.95 weighs in at 780g
    They all are 66 TPI
    Good luck
