    New question here. Looking for: "Big diameter" low rolling resistant 29er/700c tires

    So I can keep up with my wife on her fast road bike carrying my kiddo around on 30 to 50mile rides, looking for something slick to semi slick and fast as hell..

    I need air volume to provide cushion for my baby from the jolts on the road, also the Adept will take up to about 45mm tires, so most normal 29er's will not fit, in short I need advice..

    Schwalbe Big Apples. or Schwalbe Kojak

    Get the biggest size you can fit on the bike.

    I like the T-servs, some others here too:
    Panaracer: Professional Bike Tires from Panasonic | Urban

    More "faster" Schwalbes, up to 700x38
    Faster | Schwalbe North America

    I am loving my new Surly Knard 41c tires, quick and very comfy
    Today I will do what others won't, so tomorrow I can do what others can't

    Fastest high volume slicks around are the Compass/Gran Bois tires, particularly the "extra-light" ones. You may be interested in the 700c x 38mm Barlow Pass. Pricey, but you did specify "fast as hell".

    Nice bolandjd. I'd drop over 2 pounds on the rims. Too bad the Michelin City tire s appear to have a decade left in them.

    Haven't used the Big Apples, but I got the Schwalbe Marathon Supreme's at 40c for my uncle and they've been fantastic -
    Marathon Supreme HS 382 | Schwalbe North America

    Fast Rolling + Comfortable (though pricey).

    Lower rolling resistance than the Big Apples, and fat as hell at 2.35 and way lighter too are the Schwalbe Super Moto. The lower rolling resistance and lighter weight are from their lack of puncture protection, thinner sidewalls, and kevlar beads. (I think) Probably similar to the 120 TPI Knards, without knobbies, and waay wider/bigger.

    Looking for: "Big diameter" low rolling resistant 29er/700c tires

    I got halo twinrails on my old 26er. My 29er has race kings and they are just as fast but way better on dirt if needed. I was going to put slicks on my 29er but the race kings have been great.
