I wonder what is the speed now?

you actually dont need to change to 1.5. 2.0 is good enough and pump the air to a bit higher psi for road riding and  bring down to 30 - 40 psi for off road moutain stuff. So that you can use both with same tire.

Ha, riding MTB on road can be very tiring for me. I tried my very ancient MTB once on the fast stretch of Changi Coast, it took me alot of energy to go at 30km/h and can hardly last 500m. Then is back to around 20km/h for the rest of the journy. And, my God is killing me to ride the 15km stretch. I had tried my velo, is better going at 25km/h, but the best bet is still my roadie, comfortable and fast and relatively need less energy to do the same job. enjoy yr riding.

More energy use means more calories burned. Thats wat mainly cycling is all about, to kip fit, to burn calories. Just dont end de journey with 5 slabs of prata & sweet milked coffee/tea.. Dats the reason, cyclist end up even fatter after each cycling session.. Heeeee....

Sorri Dave, I came in too last min. Looks like you got your problem solved. ha.
Here's my 2 cents opinion:
If you still love the MTB tire look, then try this.  Schwalbe Rocket Ron.  Or Schwalbe Racing Ralph. The 2.1 inch width will be a sweet spot. MTB look, with alot of speed. Pump up to ~ 45 psi and it will rocket thru your roads.

For me I changed my tire to Continental Sports Contact 26" x 1.35. It is the slickest tire for MTB I can find. Pump it to 80 psi and you can feel the resistance transferred to your body instead of the tires.
