    29er cheap road wheel/tires

    My father in law just bought a trek 29er mtb. He was asking what a decent wheelset would be to swap on his bike for road/bike path rides when he doesn't want to be on knobby tires.

    I know road bikes fairly well but have no idea if there is a standard entry level mtb wheel and tire for such (something like aksiums)

    Any help is appreciated

    Just get a set of slick tires. No need to get an entirely new wheelset.
