I'm pretty new to mountain biking and I was wondering if my 29er wheels will fit into a 700c trainer. (You can thank the Arizona summer for this question)

I am running my 29er on the trainer. Using wtb slick 29x2.1 urban commuter tire. Works great. No more noisier than the 1.5 slick that was on there before

definitely want the slick. I had a cheap mountain bike tire on one, similar tread as the bontrager tires on $300 LBS bikes. Loud as heck. Swapped to smooth, and could hear much better. Of course, the drivetrain was noisy, but that's a different problem.

Only thing I did notice, even with smooth tires in the highest gear you'll get with a 29er, the resistance was still real low, but I did have one of the cheap $70 trainer off amazon.
