    42c/1.7" width tires

    Does anyone know of any treaded 700x42 tires? That's also 29x1.7.

    Even semi-slick might be fine. Or abit smaller, 700x40.

    Not for racing but for trail use; I'm looking for some hand and wrist lovin' and my front fork claims it can fit up to 42c.

    The Schwalbe Marathon Extreme is treaded and comes in 40mm. The40mm Dureme has a much subtler semi-slick tread and rolls faster on the road.
