Wear rate for Grifos on grass/loam?
I love racing and training on my Grifo's but I hope I don't wear em out quick. I'd think that riding on my yard trail which is soft grass, leaves and loam wouldn't wear tires out fast but it's my first season so I have no idea. I have a couple other tires I can use but I've just been going for the grin factor these days. I suppose it's time to spare my sweet tires a bit. Anyway, how long to expect Grifo's to last? What kind of soft dirt mileage do they get? It's soft turf but then the rubber seems soft, too. I'm not braking much or skidding. (Fietsbob thought this was a better Q for the Race side of the forum. I don't quite see why, but then I'm still unclear as to why the group was split. CX is kind of about racing.) Thanks, JP
