I'm looking at either the Avon Distanzas or Gripsters, possibly Michelin Anakees, but would be open to other suggestions.
Any personal experience with these or other street oriented DS tires I may want to check out will be greatly appreciated.
Good street and gravel road experience with my now second set of Anakees...
And as one may expect they are no fun in sand, loose soft dirt or god forbid
