It should ride better, are you saying it doesn't. Is that the stock size?

when I changed from my old worn out metzlers, I did notice a difference in handling, not a bad change, just 'different'. most notably to me, steering was much lighter in feel

Yes, going from a worn out tire to a brand new one will be different. But the new tire is how the bike is supposed to handle. As your tire ages, you just slowly compensate for it over time without realizing it. It's like getting new eyeglasses....you just forgot how better it was....

x2 on that Knife. Plus you probably are now riding a tire with the correct pressure.
