    Commute tire recommendation for 29er HT

    I am sure this question is not new.
    I would like to use my older 29er HT for commute. Wheels are Mavic XM719 disc.
    What tires do you recommend for a mix of paved road, rough paved bike path and fairly smooth fire road?

    Thanks.

    Serfas Drifters or Schwalbe Big Apples would be my top 2 for those conditions.
    You have no excuse for driving to work
    (unless you don't have studded tires)
    (no excuse for that either)

    either mentioned is fine. I just biked over a bunch of glass today with my big apples tubed with no punctures.
    Mr. Krabs: Is it true, Squidward? Is it hilarious?

    Just remember that in order to work on a 29er rim the tire needs to be as wide as the ID of the rim.
