I'm yet to find an Australian bike shop that stocks Avocet tyres
though.

Don't forget the Specialized fatboy - a great tyre, 1.25" 100psi,
totally slick, cheap as chips. The current ones with the puncture
protection don't roll as nicely as the old model, OTOH they have black
sidewalls which last much better.

Avocet have some other 26" slicks:

Which you can't get in Australia. They're supposed to be great tyres
but it's been years since they were available.

Ritchey also makes a fat slick, and Tioga used to make a 2.0 version

of
the City Slicker. I have a slight 'Don't believe the hype' reaction to
the Hookworm - that file tread and siping is totally pointless, but I
don't think anyone except possibly Avocet makes a really treadless 2.0
slick.


These are basically straight off websites:

Vredestein "S-Lick"
Take the casing of the Volante, make a 26" version of it
and add a tread pattern that gives any mountain bike or
26" commuter, style and prestige. This tyre is designed
to have 90 pounds of pressure. It's foldable, and weighs
in at just under 350 grams.
Very low rolling resistance, stylish new colors
Perfect for commuting with the PRS system
26 x 1.3
90 PSI
Kevlar bead
Weight: 415 grams
Price: $39.99

Vredestein "Monte Carlo"
The Monte Carlo mountain bike (26") tyre is ideally suited
for the economically minded commuter with concern for
night time safety. The 3MT reflective sidewall is visible
from multiple angles. The tread pattern is ideally suited for
all-climate hard-packed or paved commuting:
Same quality casing as the S-Lick
Added visibility and safety with the 3MT reflective strip
Commuter tread pattern
PRS System
Ideal for recumbent
Weight: 560 grams
Price: $29.99

Ritchey "Mobybite"
Wide, sticky slick for traction on rock and pavement
Side fins for traction in corners and off camber surfaces
Plush, fat casing for a smooth ride and maximum
floatation on sand
26x2.1

Ritchey "Tom Slick 26""
Smooth, narrow pavement tire for mountain bikes
Same tread pattern as Tom Slick 700c road tires
Next best thing to a road bike
Pro and Comp versions
26x1.0 and 26x 1.4

Tioga "City Slicker Pro"
26"x1.00" (280g folding; 310g steel)
26"x1.25" (360g folding; 390g steel)
26"x1.50" (500g steel)
26"x1.95" (750g steel)

Metro Duro 26x1.50 50-100psi 555g

HTH someone into mtb slicks :-)
hippy

P.S. If anyone knows more mtb slicks, please let me
know - I want to build a list of what's available.




I've got WTB Slickasaurus (http://www.wtb.com/slick_15.html)
1.5" 490g

Their web site says easy to install, which was not my experience (in fact inspired me to by a new set of rims to avoid changing
between nobbies on the weekend & slicks for commuting during the week).
