Heres some tires on ebay- 1.5 inch, very smooth tread Not a bad deal.

thats all fine and dandy, but what about us who intend to ride our bikes through the winter in 3 feet of snow? i think i will keep my knobby tires!(they have no knobs left anyways, so i need new ones!)
i'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy,
