@Tuck_n_Roll_Tad_M The SKs. And yes, you're naming the rest of the reasons why I dislike them. In Kansas and Oklahoma sand/clay/flint that has gotten rain, they basically turn into fat bike tires. I do have a pair of the slicks on my mom's surly straggler which I'm babysitting, and joy riding them on paved trail or hardpack is great. Wouldn't take the GK slicks on anything else though.
My cross bike 2 years ago came with specialized trigger pro's (not 2bliss) on them in a 33c, that's the limit of my experience there. I rode them on a few mixed pave/gravel rides and didn't have any major problems that I recall, but I quickly switched to wider and tubeless.
