You actually mention something that is kind of interesting. Since I am not a local rider I won't have the options of having a dry dirt tire available and a mud tire available. So that being said I guess I should be erring on the side of a multi tire. So I have to figure if the Trigger/Clement mso/Gravel King SK/or Maxis Rambler is the tire that fits that bill. The Clement is tubeless in the 38mm which might be now listed as 40mm.
I'm riding the 38 Trigger pro that came on my Diverge Expert. I'm considering the Sawtooth 42 when these wear out. My riding is 80% pavement (this is also my road bike), and 20% dirt (soft over hard, sandy SoCal trails). Do you think the Sawtooth would be better than the Triggers? Any other tire suggestions. I favor comfort/handling over speed. Thanks! murphster I am not the tire expert on here yet as I have only been gravel bike riding/racing for a year and have only tried Clement(now Donnley) xplor mso in 700 x 40 and Kenda Flintridge Pros in 700 x 40. I like the Flintridge over the Clements. I have heard good things about the Schwalbe G Ones and Gravel Kings SK. Chase and many other posters on here have tried more tires than I have. Maybe start your own post to get some answers. I need to get a lot more miles on my bike to wear a couple set of tires out. I probably would stick with 700 x 40 tires though. Zman
If it was easy it wouldn't be a memory. You just hope you don't have all your memories in the same ride. been there dun that Zman
