Strange, I've always felt knobbies were easier to pedal on then smooth street style tires, alot let less road contact due to the knobs only touching, I have knobbies on quite a few of my cruisers for that very reason. We may have to contact myth busters about this one.
Once you roll on a full inflated big apple you're mind will change, mine sure did. The 2" in particular really rolls... and in a 29er form factor it's not doing much turning to make distance either! I'm also pretty impressed with fully inflated hookworms on pavement.. And they are plush riding..
