Will it work with a 29er Mountain bike?

Responded on

Yes and no. A 29er will work just fine, but running knobby tires in a trainer is a pretty miserable experience for both you and your tires. That is, if you don't find riding a trainer miserable in and of itself.Since 29ers are just 700c rims, you can find some inexpensive touring or cross slick tires that run a little bit wider to fit the rims and you'll be just fine.Backcountry doesn't stock any 29er slicks, so you'll need to go through your local bike shop.
