oldnslow,,, love that name btw

Be smart, experiment,
Carry TWO or three tubes and all you need to fix flats on the trail.

Set your pressure ONLY a few pounds below where you've been already and ride your COMPLETE route,
Next ride drop them TWO more psi,,,ride the whole route and repeat untill you get a snake bite,, then add 2 psi and,,***etaboutit

A buddy of mine rides real single track,, black diamond trails on a cyclo-cross bike with tires like yours.
He's 220 pounds in full ride gear. He pinches below 39 psi front and 42 rear he tells me..
