Tire pressure questions

How low do you dare run the air pressure on 1.9inch x 26 mountain bike tires? Not really technical riding, no big leaps but a fair amount dips and a fair amount of rocks. Lots of sand.

Can you...

TH

THanks. I will watch eBay and also look at new 100mm forks. I think my husband's bike has 100mm travel. I put the fork on my bike and see how it effects the standover.

Hum. I am very short so I might have to worry about standover height. I don't have a lot of "room" as it is.

If I take them off to flush them out, what would I use as a solvent? If I don't have an air compressor to blow them out after flushing is this all pointless?

Thanks everyone! Bob, I would get another Sun Race but can't find one. It works flawlessly on his bike. I guess I will just look for any three speed trigger shifter.

Apparently, the 80mm aren't in stock anywhere right now. Close to $100 when in stock.

So, the much cheaper 100mm Nashbar fork is a poor choice?
