I recently switched my tires from Bontrager Jones XR tubeless ready (was running tubes with them as they were stock on my bike Trek fuel ex9). I switched to panracer cinders since allot of guys here run them and find they work well on our terrain.
anyway if these do not work for me I might try tubeless but I'm currently 205 and I'm wondering if running lower tire pressure will result in me damaging my rims since I'm a heavier guy. I usually run around 40 psi in my tires
I should add the terrain here is pretty technical with allot of rocks and roots and I ride all mountain and will be racing a bit of XC and enduro XC this year.
anyone have much experience?
is tubeless a waste unless you can get away with low tire pressure?
