Great Tires For Moutain Bike to Hybrid Conversion

I bought the 26" version of these for a Giant MTB. They a little lighter than the larger Schalbe's I was using (Big Ben) but the more obvious trait was the lesser amount of rolling resistance, which one would hope for in using a 1.5" in. wide tire.

They're a little snug to get on the rim but using soap facilitates that some. Probably the first tire I had to use two tire tools to install and remove. Great tire so far though.
