I need to do a 350km ride at the end of the semester for gym, instead of buying a road bike I'd rather just put slicks on my karate monkey. Problem is there aren't any 29er slicks on the market. Would 700c road/cyclocross tires fit my 29inch rims (mavic A717 - I think)?

29er rims are 700c rims. I'd go with something in the 32-38 width category for road slicks.

You'll like the KM for touring, I've done a few tours with mine and it has been phenomenal!

I’ve been commuting on my set of Panaracer Pasela's for a little under a year and I only got one flat so far! Totally awesome tires you should check 'em out.

wtb makes a hybrid 700c tire called the pathway that has great volume(read cushy) and is suuuoer slick, but grip decent in town in the wet. me likey, you might too. the karate monkey is an all time great bike design!-soo versatile...

This is the best cult following commuter tire. I even but a set on my Burley for the babies. Once you try them every other commuter tire feels like a compromise
