I’m spying a 29x2 Schwalbe Fat Frank for a future build.
For roughy the same cost as the Sunlite, and a few color options.

My eBay search is ‘schwalbe fat frank 29’

My 29er Fat Franks actually say 28 x 50 (euro metric sizing) on them, they are still a 622 bead so I would expand your search.

Big Ben's & Big Apples also come in 29er:

I run the 26 version of these in brown and like them a lot as well. They come in 29er

Both the Continentals & Schwalbes are nicer looking, better riding and longer lasting than the Kenda's and other cheaper modern cruiser tires

I've run both the continental Retro's 26 and 700's and love them. They are reasonably priced, too.

700c tires sure opened a lot of options, but they all looked a little puny. I managed to track down two of those walmart special 700x38 bell reflective hybride tires to try since they were so cheap. They're fine... I think I'll probably order a set of those sunlites eventually.

I had a pair that fell apart. Literally - the beads crumbled and started to disintegrate. Maybe it was the baking hot temperatures my garage can attain.
Hmmmmmm.......... something to consider here in my tropical 100+ degree summers environment

Continental has nice 29" tires, RIDE Cruiser:
View attachment 153928
They also offer them in black or brown, I don't know about other colors. Available in 2" or 2,2" width, also available in 26", I used s 29x2,2 in the rear and 26 x2,0 in the front.
Those are nice. Never seen them before

How's the ride?
