    road tire for mountain bike

    Looking to put a set of slicker tires on my 29er for a century on it. Was looking at the scwhalbe big apple or maybe the Continental Cruise Contact 700c/29 Inch Tire. I have stans no tubes arch rims, but not running them tubeless. Anyone have any experience with a cruiser kind of tire rather then a knobby on there bike. I am going to be climbing mountain passes and coming downhill at 50mph all day, want something quality that will not fall apart. Thanks

    Before I bought my road bike, I was using Scwhalbe Marathon Supreme 700 x 35 on my Specialized Carve 29er. They rode very well and was completely satisfied with the setup on the road. Unfortunately, I was only able to get about 500 miles on them before my garage was broken into and someone stole my bike. I have since moved on to a dedicated bike for the road and a second and third for offroad.

    As you have a 29er, you can use just about any 700c tire which will fit the rim, for this, you are looking at 28mm being the narrowest that will fit (Stans advise this http://messageboard.notubes.com/view...php?f=1&t=6425)
