Chandramouly, please use the 26 x 1.75 tyres for all your regular on-road rides, be it in the city or longer tours... Switch to the 26 x 2.1 knobby ones only when you are going offroading, or if your intended route has some seriously bad roads...

btw, you need to register for the BRM-200... please click on this link:  Registration Form.

all the best... ride safe... have fun... :-)

the only advice anyone will really give you is a very generic statement youve probably already heard

"Its not about the bike" :P

that being said, go with the 1.75s

need some cycling gyan from the gurus of cycling brevets.
What tires do you recommend that i put on my trek 4500 for this brevet??
I own a set each of 26x2.1 knobbly mtb and 26x1.75 touring semislick tyres.
Your advise will help me. Thanks in advance.

Interesting Wikki explaing the term "Elevation Gain".   

The route for the BRM 200 has an elevation  Gain = 1275 mtrs.  So be prepared for a Good Climb.

Ppl attempting 200 km BRM got a spare space for 1 cycle on my Rack. Plan to drive down to Mulund from Vile Parle(E) , leave the Car there, do the BRM  and  for return Journey after BRM  1) Catch a train from Kalyan to Thane/Mulund  and Drive down  to Vile Parle (E).  2) Cycle Down to Mulund (Seems tough after gruelling 203 kms).  I am assuming an avg speed of 18 kph for completing the BRM, so if you too are nearabout, book that space.  Plan to Leave Vile Parle by 5.00 am and take the Highway & JVLR route to Mulund.
