ok, i'm sure this is a really stupid question, but...
is there such a thing as a dual-purpose sand/asphalt tire?
i ride my bike mostly on the road, but every now and then go off, which in florida means sand.
packed sand isnt too bad, although above 10mph i get this weird wavy feeling (like going over steel grate bridges), but sugar sand flat out sucks...i usually just walk the bike, or keep my feet off the pegs just above the ground incase i start to go over (which has happened twice now >.<)

so...is there such a thing as a dual purpose sand tire or will 2 wheels always suck on anything that isnt packed hard enough?

The only thing that works in sand is a paddle tire in the rear and a flotation tire in front.

Shift your weight to the rear and use lots of throttle. Momentum is your freind. Keep the power on when turning.

I decided that 500lb bikes suck in sand.

and a paddle tire would NOT work on the road, haha.

I'm now finding this out the expensive way, myself. I have to go in and out through what I always thought of as just a little sand.
I'd go for the Continental TKC-80 tires, but as has been said, because of the weight of the bike, I don't think that they would fix the problem.
