I hope the tandem brain trust can help me with this one.
I just converted our mtb tandem for road duty and was wondering about proper road tires. Our rims are 26" Rhyno Lites and are 27.5mm wide. My question is how narrow of a road tire can/should we safely use on such a wide rim? Looking for suggestions. Thanks.

You won't be able to use a true "road" tire because the diameters are different. But there are a buch of slick mtb tires you can use. We have a set of Continental Town and Country tires we use for long road rides. I think they are 2" wide. I've used 1.5" slick mtb tires on my non-tandem bike but I don't remember if I mounted them on my Ryno Lites or a different more narrow wheelset.
