I recently built up this older Ti MTB frame as my Gravel Grinder -- Canal trails in Phoenix now and this summer, the Mogollon Rim.

What do you recommend for fast, relatively narrow gravel grinder tires?

Many Thanks

Avenir Swiss Army tires. 26 x 1.95. Fatter than you want but very smooth riding and low rolling resistance. Excellent for hardpack singletrack, too. Mine see lots of gravel and dirt road. I have tried many different kinds of tires, from expensive to cheap, and these are by far the best universal tire. The only time they slip is in loose sand or deep mud.
