Looking for a decent tire in the 36-40mm range for fire-road and easy singletrack excursions. For racing I love the Michelin Muds. And for technical stuff I am lucky in that I am able to fit WTB Mutanoraptor 44s front and back. Now I'm looking for something in the middle for general screwing around in various conditions.

Check the Ritchey Mount Cross. I've got a kevlar-beaded 700x38 that I sometimes run up front. It has fairly aggressive knobs but still rolls pretty well, and is pretty light for its size (mine was only a little above the 400g claimed weight). Sorry I can't find a pic anywhere, but Webcyclery has them for $30 (same price as my LBS).

I saw a picture from the QBP catalogue on Sheldon Brown's site. Looks good.

Just got mine and so far they are nice.

Completely different feel from the Mich mud's, but know I don't worry about my rims in the rocky stuff as much.

These seem to be a very good "adventure tire". Reports of incredibly long life [8,000 + km on rear]. Many world tour cyclists favour these.
