I just bought my GF a 29inch SS MTB to get around on. The bike came with some seriously aggressive and wide MTB tires. I would like to get a set of narrower lower profile tires.
I looked at the side of the tire to get some numbers that I could compare online. The side of the tire reads 29 x 2.2 (700 x 55c*edit*). Could I use any 700 x --c tire? What would be a nice tire with low profile tread pattern? I have seen a few 700c cyclocross tires that I liked but I wasn't sure if they would work.
