    Conti and Schwalbe have a lot of options, but they get expensive fast. Conti has a bunch of touring / trekking tires in the 1.8 - 2.0 range, which are listed on their site as '28x2.0' but they...

    700x50 is normally called a 29x2.0. :)

    ...If you're tubeless, I would definitely look at 1.8 - 2.0" 29er XC tires. Some of them are extremely fast, but longevity maybe not the best.

    Currently there is no issue with mainstream 26" tire availability online. Regardless of your discipline and riding conditions, you should be able to find a suitable tire. You may not find them in...

    Disagree.

    Buy a complete used bike. Look on Pinkbike, eBay, other sources.

    of course... then you have to know what you're looking for. :)

    Sadly, I have to agree here. Giant is a notable exception and they do sell a heck of a lot of bikes.

    And most local bike shops don't even stock pumps, and those that do are not putting it in the...

    It will help, but not nearly as much as fitness and riding skills. :)

    Hardtails give up little to full suspension if you're on smooth trails, always in the attack position, shorter rides.

    Techically, yes. But let's evaluate the state of modern short- and mid-travel full suspension bikes. All but the cheapest ones are good at pedaling when setup properly.

    I am an average rider with 1x10 -- I average 17-18 mph in the country. I have tried several chainrings with 700x32 CX tires and also the substantially larger WTB Nano 700x40. I am in Kansas and...

    Depends on the chainring you want with those 29x2.0 tires.

    If you aren't going to use >38T chainring then any 29er hardtail would do, it's just a question of geometry and cost.

    I don't know about those old Spinergy Spox for a gravel or CX bike. I can just see one tacoing after hitting a big pothole or landing a bunnyhop.

    I have a rigid bike that I loan to others. I've had it a long, long time.

    I rode it once a few years ago and it beat the living hell out of me going 1/2 the speed. Not repeating that experiment.
