Nitto make the Promenade in lots of shapes, including “angled touring” style. Bike Works NYC has these and other nice fixed-gear and singlespeed parts.


Michelin Country Rock. These are (I think) what are on my mountain bike (Specialized Stump Jumper). Solid, work well on pavement and off. They happily took me and too much stuff from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 2001. Surprisingly light (for what they are). Michelin claim 560g. REI has these for $21; BikeTiresDirect has them for $14.
