I can't seem to find treaded road tires in the 26 x 2.1" --all are knobbies.

The slicks and road/treaded tires all seem to be 26 x 2.125"

Can I use 26 x 2.125" :confused:

continetal town&countrys 2.1x26 awsome tire long wearing.

The new all black ones are supposidly of mixed quality, manufactured in India.

The old tan and black ones are really good, they are manufactured in Germany, but finding good old stock is the problem.

Slicks I don't know any cheap examples right off, but Cheng Shin has some road tread tires for about $10 or so. They're listed on Amazon, from Niagra Cycle Works (I think).

Also on Amazon look for Kenda and Pyramid brand tires too.

Just be sure to buy a tire that the width is given in a decimal format, not a fractional format--the fractionals are the wrong diameter for a standard MTB rim.

MTB Freestyle (Urban Freeride) tires should work great for MBs. They are built tough and have fast rolling tread patterns. I use Kenda K-Rad 26x1.95 tires and have launched off 6' high walls to flat landings with no problems, so they should handle a regular MB rider no problem.

Here's a list of good tires:
Arrow Launch
DMR Moto R/T or Transition
Kenda K-Rad or Kiniption
Halo Twin Rail
Maxxis Holy Roller or Hookworm
Panaracer Uff Da!
Schwalbe Table Top or Big Apple
Specialized Rhythm or Compound
Tioga FS100
