Okay, I fully realize that some may consider it heresy to even think about using my mtb for asphalt commuting. But if you've ever been to Newport, you know that some of the roads around here are rougher and gnarlier than many trails. I thought about a roadie or dedicated commuter bike, but after seeing the roads, a roadie is out for commuting purposes, and I don't need/want to spend the money on a single-purpose commuter bike.
Sooo...does anyone have any worn 29er tires they're about to throw away? If you're relatively close to Newport (just about anywhere in RI, really--it's a small state), I'll come get 'em.
If not, can anyone provide any recommendations for a tire with the lowest profile tread possible for this purpose?
EDIT: After some further Googling, I've read a bit about the Schwalbe Big Apple 29" slick. Great reviews. My next question is, should I go with the 2.0" or 2.35" The bike (2010 Cannondale Flash 2 29er) came with 2.25's. Will the 2.0's be "faster" or create less rolling friction? Will the 2.35's produce a noticeable better ride?
