1995 Trek 950 MTB.

I haven't ridden it in years, but I want to get back into riding. I'm looking for good tubes and tires that I can run on pavement, and the occasional dirt trail. 26" wheels.

Any recommendations?

I have an early '90s mountain bike that I've got set up for road/touring use. I replaced the triple front chain ring with a 42/53 Shimano 105 double and have a Dura Ace front derailleur from a friend's parts bin. Works like a champ! I run Michelin City tires on it, in 35-559 size (26x1.4"). These are the exact ones:

http://www.amazon.com/Michelin-Protek-Reflective-Sidewalls-26x1-4/dp/B001CSRX18

I've actually got the exact same setup as the first reviewer; I'm using these on an old mountain bike with 26x1.5 Araya rims. These will be ideal if you are looking at mostly pavement. If you are looking at more of a mix, I've used the Bontrager LT3s before and enjoyed those. They don't offer a solid center rib, and understandably feel a little more squirrely in corners.

Both of these tires are reasonably priced and offer good performance.

Just checked out Michelin's site to see if they still sell the City Protek. It doesn't appear that they do. They have something called the Protek Cross that looks right up your alley:

The Protek (without 'Cross') looks to be the direct replacement to the City:

Having been out of the Bike scene for so long, I really had no idea what's available. Without knowing any better, I probably would've ended up with some dirt-specific tire.

I appreciate the advice, and I'll check out the suggestions.
