A good all around tire when not on pavement
I have a set of these set up tubeless on my Salsa Fargo, and so far so good. My off road riding is limited to gravel and simple single track, and these tires road plenty well, and deliver a plush and comfy ride. I like the retro browntan sidewalks. Well see how durable they are at the end of the summer.
