I've been running the Sparwood for about 6,000 miles over the last few years. It is the #1 tire I have run on my Fargo, but I've ridden most of Teravail's offerings on that bike from Rampart, to Honcho, to Coronado. The Sparwood is my favorite all-rounder as it can handle nearly everything and has minimal rolling resistance, and a long tread life. I've only had one puncture that didn't seal up over this 6,000 miles and it was jagged glass that cut a large slice into the tread. No tire would have survived.
These are the 'do everything' tire you've been looking for on your adventure bike. Get them with no regrets!
I have Terevail Sparwoods on three drop bar bikes, a Salsa Fargo, a Salsa Cutthroat and a Custom Waltworks gravel/dropbar mountain bike and wouldn't trade them for anything. Rolls so well on gravel and compacted dirt and will also give you the grip needed when things get a little soft and gooey. The guys at Tervail have done a super job of design and manufacturing. Not once have I installed a Sparwood that has a wiggle in it and as far as installation is concerned, these tires seat to the rim wonderfully. I am a loyal consumer of this product.
