  1. I am taking on the Cross Cape route on my Specialized Diverge gravel bike soon. The tyre choice is between the 38mm Panaracer Gravelking SK (small knobs) or the regular Gravelking (light file tread). I am not very familiar with the route, but suspect the faster rolling, regular GK will be the better weapon, considering we probably don't have too many hectic switchback descents in our part of the world. Also, I know some long sections will just be tarmac. Am I being a naïve moron? Any hubbers with some experience with these tyres and the area? Are the regular GK untameable on the dirt? I am a bit of a roadie, and would hate to drag any unnecessary tread along if not necessary. I'm a bit hasty like that. Looking forward to the discussion!
  2. I've been given a new 1.9 tyre which I want to put on the back. Front tyre is 2.1. I see the trend is going in the direction of wider tyres say 2.2 to 2.25. At most I ride dirt road and farm tracks but seldom gnarly single downhill rocky descents. Would appreciate some thoughts on the subject of skinny tyre like a 1.9.
