I'm setting up my 29er as a commuter. It will see hard packed dirt (easy terrain, nothing steep or technical), fire roads through the woods, paved bike paths, and limited roadway usage. I'd like to mount up tires that won't impose a lot of rolling resistance or wear terribly quickly. Seeking suggestions for this application.

Thanks.

I think Halo makes a tire called the Twin Rail that works really well for your particular application

Hutchinson Python; rides like a road tire on handles great on hardpack trails. Doesn't cut it when the trail gets wet or loose though.

+1 for Twin Rails, I patiently await mine in the mail (got hooked after borrowing a friend's ride ;) )
