Ben get yourself a set of crossover tires and you can ride most of the hardpack paths and roads. You can still ride on the road if you purchase a less aggressive lug and not be dragged down the design of the tire. Stop by Jay's on Nassau Street on your lunch break. I think they may have a demo bike you could try out to see how much traction you get on a loose trail with tires such as these on a road bike.Yes, sadly I can't do mountain bike trails with my road bike tires
That is awesome! Thanks!Hi Ben,
Have you seen this?
