    gravel road tire

    Hey all, quick tire question: I going to start riding the levy roads in south Florida (near Markham, through the Everglades). What is a good 29er tire for gravel? I am currently on a Nobby Nick front and Racing Ralph rear.

    The Kenda Small Block 8 should work great and can be found at a reasonable price.
