To be fair, 3 different bikes in the pic, 4 on the ride, all different tires. Mine is the Best and Most Beautiful Bike of All, on the far right, sporting the Mitas e07 tires. They are the best compromise tire I've found so far, including dunlops, Mefo, etc. Not the best at anything, but very good compromise for that bike and my particular use- 50/50 ish. Most of the IDBDR is gravel over hardpack, my least favorite surface (with the except maybe deep mud or sand. Maybe it's a tie.) and most tires kinda suck on that surface anyway. Sure, I'd have been better off with a big Motoz on the back, but for our ride, at least half the mileage was on pavement returning to our truck. Fabless' 690 with a trials tire would have been nice on the rocky uphill to the lookout, but that was a small section.
