    Yet more tyres

    I use my chameleon for quite a varied amount of stuff, so my tyres get swapped around quite a bit, but there is one spot which is missing.

    I want something for smooth hardpack down hill runs and dirt jumps/skate parks/general urban tarmac/gravel riding/possibly a bit of smooth dry XC use. I figure something like the DMR moto RT or Maxxis holy roller is the way to go, but I can't make up my mind which. Anyone have experience with both of them or opinions about either one? DMR seems to be lighter and cheaper.

    I know having this much tyre selection may seem unnecessary to some of you, but high rollers really don't work riding distance on tarmac, it constantly sounded and felt like I had a flat rear tyre.

    Any other suggestions on better tyres for this are welcome, Thanks in advance.

    I just started using Schwalbe Fast Freds, very light and quick rolling- I'm liking them so far for dry hardpack trails.
    Why is going slower harder?

    Jenson has some of these that are OE for 19/tire.
    When in doubt, style it out.
