Cross tubs. One set only, Fango or Grifo?

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

If anyone has experience with the challenge tubulars, which would be the best tyre to go for as my only set of cross tubs? To use in all conditions.

Many thanks.

Some even recommend Fango front / Grifo rear :-)

What he said. That's what I run. Except in muddy conditions Grifos all around better.

I'm very happy with Grifo.
Except deep mud, the Grifo is pretty good everywhere. It also lasts so long

If you ever expect mud, go grifo.

Cheers for the Feedback guys, went for the majority vote and ordered some griffos (fangos actually out of stock with uk distributer anyway!) Odd how the last review put them in favour of mud whereas the others didn't! Will let you know what they're like once I've raced on them.
