Cool pics. Thats alot of bike on those trails
I didn't switch tires during ride. :)
But it would really be a cool trick!

The knobies ( Continental TKC 80) are fantastic on dirt - on street they are ok when dry conditions but when wet they are very hazardous...

The tires which you see in the posting set in Austrian forest are:
front Pirelli MT 60
rear Metzeler Enduro 3 Sahara

They are both quite good offroad when dry and also on street when dry.
When wet on street they are ok but not as good as street-tyres.
The Pirelli is not very usable when wet offroad. The Metzeler is ok when wet offroad. But not as good as the Conti TKC 80 offroad.

And I didn't see a single knobby in that string of old pictures. Knobbies will increase the fun factor though.
