    Slick Tyre Recommendation, need ideas!!!

    I have a 20" bike which I'm building and will be using a 406 rim which is 29mm wide. It'll be used for trail and also road. I thought I'd get a couple of sets of tyres, probably Small Block 8s, but some slicks as well. Anybody any experience? Seen these Schwalbe Kojak 20" Tyre | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com
    just wondered if they would go on the 29mm rim OK?

    Any ideas/suggestions for a lightweight slick type tyre?

    The people that know about 20" slick tires ride recumbents.

    1.35" kojak should be about 34mm wide, should work fine with a 29mm width rim. If you want faster, smaller tires you should also probably consider getting narrower rims so that the width of the tire does not drop below width of the rim.
