I happen to have an old Schwalbe Albert laying around. Its not the Fat/Little Albert, but just plain "Albert" 2.25 with SnakeSkin (I think). My current rear tire (Nevagal 2.1 DTC) is wearing down and I was wonder how the Albert compares? Is it better as a front or rear tire? How does it work in sandy conditions? I checked the review section, but they all seem to be for the Fat Albert. Thanks.
