- fastest 29er mtb tyre for commuting ?
Google for 28″ tyres, 29er rims are 700c rims with 2″ tyres to make them ~29″. So smaller/slicker tyres are labled as 28″ with the same 622mm insisde rim diameter.
Be carefull, because in old money there was a 28″ wheel size (god knows why) to compliment the 27″ wheel size which was common before the nearly identical 700c took over. And it’s still possible to get tyres for those which have a 635mm inside rim dimaeter!
Just wait untill 36″ wheels become popular (they exist) and then 30″ (the old 28″ with a bigger tyre) becomes the new 650b.Posted 4 years agoscotroutesSubscriberjacob46 wrote:

If I go onto crc website to order sum tyres and click on 700 size. They will fit my 29Er rims??
Yes. The rims are the same diameter. The only issue you might hit is that narrow 700c tyres could be too narrow for your rims. Flows are wide rims so stick to 32mm and up and you should be fine. FWIW, 32mm is also 1 1/4″. Some tyres might come in that mix of metric and imperial.Posted 4 years ago
Look ok for the money!
Continental Sport Contact City Road Bike Tyre.Posted 4 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I’ve used sport contacts for commuting, they’re a propper roadie tyre but in a big size, which makes them super quick, and theres no tread to squirm arround on the road. But probably not as puncture proof as say schwalbe marathons (still yet to puncture mine though, but I expect it’ll be more than the never some tyres manage).
Go as wide as you can, it makes minimal difference to speed and will be comfortable and less prone to pinch punctures. On a scale of 1-10 for speed, if a downhil tyre is a ‘1’, an XC tyre is a ‘4’, those in their widest size will be at least a ‘9’ relative to a out and out race tyre at ’10’.Posted 4 years ago
