Hi
So I want to use a 29inch MTB donor bike for a BBS02 conversion.
Donor bike will have 29inch tubeless-ready rims.

I won't be doing any offroad cycling, just basically roads and light gravel.

I'm looking for a tubeless 29 inch road tire, but I can't find any.
Any suggestions?

Thanks

Depending on what width tire you are interested in, you can mount 700C tires, which are the same diameter as so-called 29 inch tires. What is the inner width of the rims you will be using?

The rim is a Giant XCT Tubeless Ready, 29", Disc (25mm inner) from a Giant Fathom 29 1

I can't find much specs on it.
Are 700C and 29inch really close enough for tubeless-ready compatibility? I thought tubeless-ready were pretty finicky on tolerance fit.

They are not "close enough", they are identical in diameter at 622mm. The Surly would be fine. Others you might be interested in: Maxxis Re-Fuse, Panaracer GravelKing Plus, Schwalbe G-One All-Around.
