Today I road about 25 miles with my pressure lowered to around 32psi front and rear. I think it was better traction and more comfort. If the tubeless holds up its a winner. Thanks.

I'm 225 and I air them to 42 front and back on my Small Block 8's; 26 X 2.3

I do 40PSI on my 29'er Kenda Nevegals. Got to make use of that .5" of travel!

Well, As I'm just getting back into biking, and well, have forgotten a lot.
I was looking at the tires that came with my bike thinking, no wonder I'm having trouble getting grip.
I'm 180 and running 50 F & R, I'm off to let some air out. I'll try 40 I think.
Thanks to all who have posted here, possibly saved me buying tires I don't need.

Question: Tires say 35 - 65, Can I go lower than 35 on trails?

220 lb Running Kenda small block 8s 2.1 front and rear @ 50psi
Cambodia has a bunch of muddy back road and single track, keeping them hard lets them dig in and get to the hard surface below the slippery stuff.

Since my post 4 years ago, I've grown to 225 lbs. and 6'5". Well, not really. Still a scrawny flyweight, running the same tire pressures as before.
