I've been reading and searching through the threads and I've found alot of good info. I just want to consolidate some of this and get a few opinions.

I'm new to the biking world so bear with me. I have an 04 Specialized Hardrock sport. It's a great bike and I love it but I'm riding with a group of guys a few times a week around our local lake and a bit into the trails. Nothing fancy on the trails it's just mainly sprinting around the lake on paved paths. I've got these Enduro tires that are monsters and making work myself to death.

I'm wanting to get a set of more road friendly tires. From what I've read here are a few good candidates

Vermins serfas

continental travelcontact


I'm leaning towards the armadillo. I'm planning on sticking with the roads around lake hefner but I also want to hit the trails to break things up. any suggestions from you pro's?

Im with ya! They seem to be a touch more aggressive in the tread, but dont expect a whole bunch of traction on the trails.
