    what kind of riding? what are you riding on?
    Some people are just like Slinky's. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    Michelin Country Dry 2.15's are pretty good. I took mine off to tackle the serious bad weather for winter (DMR Redshifts are AWESOME in wintry conditions!), but 9+ months out of the year, they rock! Roll easily, slip/skid rarely, I've had ONE flat in six months of use (picked up a piece of shrapnel riding on a street adjacent to a construction area). As soon as I'm sure the nastiness is done falling out the sky, they're going back on.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how they work with the new wheelset -- the Mich's are lighter than the DMR's, and my new wheels are feathery compared to the old!

    I used this on my bike when I first returned to MTBing. Put it on the back, it has plenty of grab for what you are doing. It is very visible at night for commuting. Put something with knobs on the front and you should be good.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.

    I jut put some Continental Race-King 2.0s on my MTB, and was pleasantly surprised. They're fast and have great grip, even with a lot of air in them (45 psi). I bought them for riding on gravel tracks, but they work well on grass, rocks, and dry mud too. They're not so good in wet mud, but I'm willing to put up with that since I save so much energy on the dryer ground.
