Photo from 4 years ago. Rebuilt the bike last month, back to original offroad setup. But enjoyed it riding slick tyred too. Here a photo from my trip from Marseille to the Grand Colombier. Pic taken a few kilometer before the top of Col d'Allos (South slope)

I've got some Panaracer Pasela on order, once they arrive I'll stick them on my bike and get a photo up.

I got some Schwalbe City Jet 26x1.95 skinwall ordered, will post once they are on my commuter! Anyone tried them? Considered the Pasela, but they cost quite a bit more.

Yeah, see my posts on the previous page. I've used them a few times over the years, but settled on the full-fat 1.95 version. If you're not used to slicks on a Mtb then be prepared to be amazed by the reduced rolling resistance and how silent it is riding along on slicks :)
