|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.
