    2013 Trek Marlin > Which Tyres?


    I'm collecting this later, got it very cheap so I'm not fussed about low spec.

    Trek Bicycle

    It originally came with Bontrager 29-1, 29x2.1" tyres apparently, but the guy has used it only on the road a bit, so it has road tyres on it. I'm a complete noob so wondering what tyres I should stick on it for trail riding?

    Nothing too expensive mind.

    Thank you

    Look around for deals but any tire will do as long as it's not too wide. Max you could probably get away with in back is a 2.2 and maybe a 2.25 in the front. Maybe something like this (could go either front or back): Hutchinson 29" Scorpion Bike Tire - Walmart.com
    Please donate to IMBA or your local IMBA chapter. It's trail karma.

    I've run 2.2" Continental Trail Kings on mine the last few years, great all around tire (good grip, volume, durability, roll decent on pavement) and can be had reasonably priced (~$40) on eBay or Amazon.
