Hello Folks,

I'm currently running Maxxis Cross-Mark 2.1 Kevlar tires on my mountain bike.

Most of the riding that I'm doing is up steep paved inclines in the mountains here in Taiwan with some steep declines as well.

Most of the roads are pretty well paved with some occasional semi-loose broken pavement, loose gravel and dirt and sand.

I'm thinking that I can get away with some less knobby tires designed more for paved roads.

Can anyone recommend some fairly commonly available tires that can fit the bill.

Thanks in advance.
