I'm looking for a good knobbie that will work well in this (my) situation: I can only get to the trail maybe once every couple of weeks so I have a route in my city that consists of short jams of dirt alleys with stone mixed on the tops with short regular paved roads in between. There are a few drops that I can throw in and a few of the alleys are pretty twisty with some 90 degree turns connecting to other alleys. So, I guess I need a knobbie that will hook in the dirt with some loose rock on top and also not wear as fast as some of the others on the paved road bits.
I've been looking at the Conti Gravity in 2.3 as I found them at a very good price. What do you think? Thanks.
