Thread resurrection... What size tires are you using on road/CX/gravel bikes on trails like Fisherman's, Spur 4, or grinding up Mtn. Highway?
As big as you can to suit the terrain. Tubeless.
In order of decreasing speed and fun on smooth trail/medium gravel in the LSCR:
My 100 mm Ti hardtail has 29x2.5 tubeless
My Revolt has 700x38 tubeless
My Anyroad had 700x30 tubes
Of course, on the road the opposite order applies. For mostly road and smooth, light gravel, the tubeless 700x38 is superb. Tubeless is the key here.
We’ve also ridden rough logging road gravel on our 700x30 (bone-jarring) and our Reigns (2.5” with suspension is the way to go here!). Have yet to test out the Revolt, but I’m leaning toward a suspended MTB on heavy rough logging road type gravel. (FYI, I consider Fishermans & Mtn hwy a smooth, medium to light gravel).
