Hello,

Currently I am using Continental Town And Country tires for commuting to work which
involves about 4 miles of gravel fire road and 2 miles of pavement.

I was told about Schwable brand of tires. In particular the Land Cruiser brand looks like an interesting alternative to Town&Country hybrid tire.

Unfortunatelly I am having the thoughest time trying to find Schwable brand in US. Is there a place where they can be ordered from?

Today, while visiting LBS, I noticed another interesting tire - Specialized Crossroads EX. Its profile looks very similar in concept to Schwable's Land Cruiser. It is inexpensive, $19.

MTB reviews of this tire are a bit concerning.

Any info is greatly appreciated.
