I'm considering using this as an everyday tire for NW conditions in winter, spring, and fall mostly. I don't typically do alot of mud riding, but non the less, it's hard to avoid here. I live in a high rise apt building, and would like something that either sheds mud quite well or is easy to clean mud off of.

IMO having used, though not in mud, the BG 2.1 I'd say probably pretty well. Based off the knob spacing and low height it should clog too bad and should clean pretty easy if it does clog at all. I "heard" from others that they do pretty well. I know for So.Cal conditions it's a sweet tire.

Based on the 2.35 & 2.50 BV and the 2.10 Nevegal they are OK at not packing up on the trail. Full-on mudders are better.

If your main concern is how easy they are to wash off after a ride they are easy to clean up.

I have found the Blue Groove to be quite sketchy in muddy conditions. My 2.5 & 2.35 pack up and don't let go of the mud, but the soil here in GA is very tacky and mostly red clay. In moist to hardpack conditions they are very confidence inspiring and have give great braking performance. They do clean very easily.

They have yet to invent the tire that works well in wet red clay.

The Maxxis Swampthing w/ the DH casing has been the best I've tried so far.
