(-there is another general 29-er thread but it has descended into irrelevancy-)
I am wondering if anyone makes them.
Most I have found specs on are only around 1"/25mm width.
Basically, wider == better.
Ideally I'd want something towards 35mm, "downhill"-widths, but am not holding my breath.

Its nice to know there's other possibles, but I think the Snow Cats take the prize here.
Thanks much all.
