29er tires are essentially fat 700C tires. If you're not riding cracked, broken pavement, you should try narrower, lighter, higher pressure tires. You have Alex TD-20 rims on that bike- you could probably run 700 x 32C tires on it with no problem. 700 x 32C or 35C Panaracer Pasela tires, pumped up to 90 or 100psi, and I bet she'll fly.
Are you sure she's not dragging the brakes? (That's my wife's trick.)
