    It's the width of the tire.

    There's a chart at the bottom of the page I linked:
    http://www.sheldonbrown.com/tire-sizing.html#width

    Also, after making sure it will fit your rim (which it most likely will, most rims that can hold 25 can hold 29), also make sure it will fit inside your fork and stays.

    If you're wondering if it's too big to ride fast, the answer is no. A tire that much bigger will mostly just feel more comfortable, although it will have slightly more rolling resistance. It's a personal choice. Since you're putting purple tires on a bike, I'm sure you're not worried about maximizing speed, anyway.

    I ride around town with 32mm tires on my fixie. They are still very fast and also very comfortable.

    I have 700 x 32cm tire and they are pretty fast. Not a racing tire but fast, comfortable and crater proof.
    Its a good commuter townie tire.

    How much clearance do you have around the 25's? Caliper brakes?

    Yeah, just make sure you have more than 29mm worth of clearance. You should, but it's always smart to know/check.

    The 29mm will be comfy and fast.

    I'm not a fan of the tread on these, though, but it shouldn't be a problem. I prefer slick (treadless) tires on pavement.
