During my typical 18 mile single-track N Florida ride, I have to do 1.8 miles on pavement. There I run typically 17 to 18 mph on 27 psi unless I'm trying to keep up with this 40 year-old lady who runs about 22. I try to draft!

I ride roughly half time in the mountains. There I'll run a little firmer (27 to 30) depending on the trail. Since I use tube-type tires tubeless with Stan's NoTubes conversion, I don't want to get below his recommended psi.
