Norman goes tractor style with some Schwalbe Land Cruiser tyres.

Very smooth on road and enough grip to get me up a proper muddy hill.

Impressed.

new cassette and chain on its way.

50t /42t Shimano 600 chainrings with a golden arrow crankset, front mech, 600 rear. Modern budget wheels and the rest is as always.

I run those tyres, and am very happy with them, and the price, so far. As you say, very low rolling resistance on the road, and so far, enough grip for me on the dirt. Have been forwards, backwards, and sideways, and stayed on with these, so all round, a good result. 8)
