    Anyone running Big Bens?What pressure?

    .

    Just received these in the mail yesterday and mounted them. I'm also replacing my fenders and doing some end of winter maintenence, so I haven't gotten out on them yet.

    Wondering if anyone else is running these and if so what pressures you've tried with them.

    I got the grey 2.15" ones. Proper pictures soon when the bike is back together.

    I have the brown 29x2.0 and run them at about 35 in the front and 40 in the rear. Love them so far!

    I've found I use the same pressures on the Big Bens (2.15"), that I did with the Big Apples (2.35").

    35 front, 40-42'ish rear.
