Recommended tire pressure for Schwalbe Big Ben tires?
I just got a discounted Hunqapillar with Big Ben tires (29 X 2.1). Nice and balloony! The recommended tire pressure on the sidewall states 30 psi to 55 psi. I tried about 40 psi to see how it rode.
Pretty nice! But I wouldn't mind a bit more suspension, so I though about lowering the psi. At the same time, I don't too much loss due to low pressure.
Any recommendations on what the ideal pressure should be?
