I have just worn out my very good fast rolling Michelin XL tyres (2.0 width) and replaced them with Speciallized fast track 2.2, but the drag i seem to be getting from these tyres seems to alot worse than my Michelin mountain extreme which i have on my weekend trail bike. Can anyone recommened a fast rolling tyre, cheap tyre with minimal drag to put on my mountain bike commute bike? i think the rimswill let me go down to a 1.5 width.

    Will Spesh Armadillos fit your rims? They're seriously durable, and I have no problem with rolling resistance.
