    Trek Cobia Trainer Tires

    Hi all,

    I am looking for tires for my 29er Trek Cobia to use with the trainer that I just purchased for the winter, but I have no idea what sort of tire I should get for the trainer! Help?

    Thanks!

    just get an inexpensive 700c touring tire. Something 32mm or wider ought to fit just fine on your rim.

    Im doing the same for this winter, your trek shop has cheap wider road tires that do perfect. Like $20ish for one, only need the one on the rear. harder compound so I figure it should last a few winters for me. And thankfully its easy enough to swap tires back and forth so I can ride outside when weather permits.

    Thanks for the advice.
    I went to the local Trek Shop and they tried to sell me a $60 trainer tire.
    They had no 700c x 32+ in stock :\

    Here you are: Amazon.com: Kenda 700X32 Kwest Blk/Bskn K193,, 60 Tpi, 50-85 Psi: Sports & Outdoors

    There are plenty of 32mm or larger options out there for less than $15. The less tread/texture on the tire, the quieter it will be on the trainer. You will also want a road/touring tire sized tube, because your 29er tube will be very difficult to fit into a skinny tire.
