    Tire Pressure

    What would be a good pressure to run for a big guy (200+lbs) on a hard tail? I normally run 40psi and wondering if i can go below that in sloppy conditions?

    What size tires and are you running tubeless? I'm 235 and I run just about 35-37psi, 40psi if I'm running tubes.

    It's better to burn out than fade away...or slip out of your pedal and face plant on the side of the road!!!
