Not sure on those, maybe.
What did I want, well I started to write and thought just putting tyres and see what was offered.
I have Velociraptors on two bikes and they seem fine all the time. I have some cheng shing things with quite knobly square block tread and they are OK, except they don't grip so well climbing loose stuff, as well as the velociraptors. I bought a pair of 2.25 Maxxis Advantages, but they are a very fat 2.25" and won't go past brake blocks, that's before they are inflated. So real world 2.2" wide max and I want something that grips going uphill on loose stuff.
