You are getting some great advice now from a wider group of riders. I don't want to discourage your riding in any way. You obviously are already having a great time riding and our goal now is to find you the gear that is the best match possible.
The Flow Drifter 156 is one option. It is 24.9 at the waist and 25.7 at the center inserts. That is getting closer. Every little bit of width that you lose will help you.
