Can anyone recommend 26" skinny rims & tyres for my Dahon Cadenza?
I find the supplied wheels heavy and censored and need to build some new ones on Deore hubs.

    My favouritre skinny tyres are Specialized All Conditions Pro Folding 26x1.0, fast, grippy, puncture-proof, inflate to 125psi (rim permitting).

    Conti GP 1" slick is good too.

    If you run high pressures then you could do with a rim which can withstand the hard environment. The X618 is/was double-eyeletted and good for this, but I'm not sure they make it any more. There may be an equivalent newer version.
