    Winter road tires for 29er SS

    With summer at its best in the Netherlands at the moment, I want to look at my options for the winter.

    Currently using my road bike as commuter (60k a day), but for winter I want to start using my 29er SS with a bigger cog.

    Question: what 29er tire best to use for the roads in winter? Dont think my Ardents will be really efficient.

    Any road tires will do. Don't be scared off by the width of your rim vs the narrowness of the tire. A 700x25c road tire will work fine on any mtn rim. If you want a cushier ride, take a look at tires in the 30-35c territory.

    So if I was to find a 40mm cross tire, it would fit and I would be able to do some fireroads... Interesting idea

    You mean a smaller cog? Bigger cog means slower speed.

    If it's snowy/icy there, I'd look into a studded tire set up.
