    Tire Like WTB Byway in 700c?

    Like the title says, is there anything like the WTB Byway in 700c? I have plenty of frame clearance for up to a 57c tire. Bike is a Penhale Gypsy. Iíve looked at the Compass Snoqualmie Pass 44c & Antelope Hill 55c, but neither have the shoulder knobs like the Byway. Any good recommendations?

    Would the Conti Speed King in 29 x 2.2" fit the bill?

    I actually saw those while I was researching a bit. After further consideration, Iím leaning towards something closer to the 45c-50c range. I currently have WTB Nine Lines 29x2.25 on there.

    Contiís Iíve had tend to run narrower, do you know if the Speed Kings are true 2.2?

    Sadly, thereís nothing really like that. I will say the Terrence Elwood and Panaracer Gravel King SK are as close as youíll get.

    I wish there was a 700c WTB Byway as well.
    I have a set of Bontrager XR0 tires on order that I hope will fit the bill.

    Schwalbe Thunderburt 2.1 liteskin or snakeskin, or even furious fred 2.0

    Maxxis Maxxlite 2.0 for lightweight, or Treadlite 2.1 with exo for more durability

    Vittoria Terreno Dry 700x38 Really 42mm on a my 21mm internal rim

    Gravel King SK 700x43

    Depending on the rim width any of those may grow or shrink to get close to the range you're looking for. All have a smooth or file center with some corning knobs.
