I'm looking for a good tire for my new build, 700x35, and this will be single-speed, so no skids. I'll be doing mostly city commuting, with a little trail riding on hard-pack dirt. I think I'd like a little bit of tread, but not a full on studded cyclocross style tire, so that I can still get along on the streets alright. I know I can get cheapo Kenda from Nashbar for under $10 a piece, but I've had bad luck with cheap Kenda's being slippery in the past. What would you recommend?
