As title, are Furious Freds any good for light trail and road, predominantly dry?
Also, is their 2.2 a good 2.2 or are they smaller than stated? Will they fit and run well on my Clockwork?

Good effort with the apostrophe, sprinkle sentence liberally with commas until it makes sense.

Schwalbe's road-oriented tyres generally have a weak carcass and not enough rubber to provide any sort of durability or puncture protection.
For your intended use, I'd avoid Schwalbe.

I must say I was pretty pleased with the Specialized Crossroads 1.95" tyres I initially put on my 503. plenty of grip in the sand, and they rolled like a proper road tyre when you were on asphalt. They were cheap too.

I did around 1500 miles with mine, and they look like they'll last another 10K+.
I only took them off because I wanted pure road tyres with amberwalls on that bike, but plan to put them on another bike soon.

You obviously have never met cannondale king. If you had you would know about his long battle with dyslexia. Next time engage brain before typing.

I think an apology is due.

My tongue was firmly in my cheek, no offence intended.
