I'm in a bit of an annoying situation. Having dragged my bike on the train 200 miles to uni, I discover that its got a nice slow puncture on the rear tyre, measured in days, and that the soft compound of my tyres is wearing away like I had been at them with an electric sander, on the rear wheel especially.
Basically, I'd like some advice on tyre matching, since only the rear tyre is badly affected and needs changing. The tyres ive got on at the minute are knobbly offroads, and I'm set to do a lot more on road cycling. I would like the opportunity to go offroad some, though.
Currently I'm thinking changing the rear tyre to an on-road, maybe a tyre by Schwalbe, and either keeping the offroad tyre on the front to keep grip in turning or changing it to a hybrid on/off road.
So yeah. Advice please, and recommendations (26x1.95" tyres...)

May I ask... why do you want on-road tyres? Even if most of your cycling is done in a city I'd stick to offroad; I used to have a mountainbike before it got nicked and have always preferred the tyres on that, simply because they don't get punctured so easily and because even in a city there's plenty of times when you need a bit more grip.
Can't really give advice otherwise, though I know schwalbe tyres are good.

I would seriously get on road tires, like the Specialized Nimbus tire. They are way more efficient for on road by a country mile. You can still use them for dirt road and light trail use.
Most of us have "big" ideas that we will go off roading, but the reality is that we barely ever do.:rolleyes:
