Just purchased a used Pocket Rocket fitted out with some older IRC tires. Having a blast with this bike as I have it stored in Germany and have been out and about touring the villages on my business trips to Europe.
The tires are in need of replacing and the terrain I am riding on is often crushed gravel, cobblestones interlaced with broken glass, twigs, etc... Been doing a lot of reading about the 451 tire options and they seem very limited in terms of a "hybrid" tire. Love going fast and am a roadie at heart but need a tire that can be fast and yet survive the offroad riding and debris on the roads I am riding.
Was looking at the Intense Micro Knobby MK2 and the Primo Comet as they seem to have some tread to them. Like the idea of the Schwalbe Ultremo but don't think it looks to practical (basically a slick) for my purposes.
Any suggestions, recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
