maybe if you stuck a holly roller tire on the front wheel and a street one in the back which is the common setup of tires nowadays. there not so bad of a tire but i would use it for mainly dirt since the tire treads are made more for dirt. you can always get a street one in the back anyone that would suit you.

Yeah... I pick up what you're throwing down. Tires are so damn mystical lately. All this trying to find the perfect tire BS is bogging me down. Low pressure tires are heavy and high pressure tires are, well, high pressure (my roads are rough). I'll get it right eventually.

For $26/pair, I think I'm going to buy them and try them as a set first. If I need lower rolling resistance or better acceleration after a few rides, I'll slap semi-slick back on the rear. That may be the only way to know for sure.

After some thought...

I have decided to go for a M-Tread 2.1 rear and a Holy Roller 2.2 front. My head hurts.
