Waiting on hydraulic disc brake levers/calipers kit w/bleeding accessories and new tires 26x2.25 that will fit under my old fenders.
Opinion time! Which of these, both going for about $55 each! I plan to ride mainly paved trails, but maybe sometimes gravel/aglime and sometimes grass to avoid a fool.

Btw, I would go with 2.35 but the Alex Adventurers may not like them. Oh, handlebars and stem! Going to go with a 60mm stem w/o rise per the Velo calculator. What are your favorite bars? I think I'd like reasonably flat with 5-10 degree back sweep. Yes, I've been on WhatBars. I'm not huge in name brand stuff unless it's a proven.
 
Go with the city tires. The knobbies won't be needed unless you're doing some more serious offroad, but they will be a drag ALL the time. You can't do crazy stuff on gravel with them of course, but htey won't sink in either unless it's really soupy.
 
I have Continentals on my Aventon Level.2. Great tires. I think you'll be happy with them. They'll be quiet and durable.
