    29er trainer tire

    Hey guys just got my cycleops magneto trainee today and my tire didn't arrive so I tried just hooking it up with the stock bonty offload tires but they wont clear part of the frame. I was going to just buy a 700x35 hybrid tire but now that im reordering I wondering if anyone knows of a slick that large or if I could get 25mm slicks to work on my bonty at-850b wheels or if they are too wide??

    Anyways any help would he swell.

    How wide is your rim? You can wrestle a 25mm road tire onto a 25mm wide rim, but I wouldn't do more than that. (Some road rims are actually this wide.)

    There are also 28mm tires. You don't need a true slick, to be honest, because there is minimal hum from the typical road 'feathergrain' tread. This tire should work fine: http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Product...1_203181_10000_

    That was a real fast search. Any slick/minimal tread 700x28 will get you going.
