IMHO there are zero issues mounting a 42c tire on an 18mm inside width rim ... my (now sold) 26" MTB had 2.2" tires on 19mm rims for years without issues .

40psi seems low to me, maybe you're very light... I'd ride 42c at 45 if not 50psi (being at 75kg / 165lb) , or maybe they have a very sturdy side wall that's keeping its shape better, who knows.

I wouldn't get caught up in the new craze of fatbike wide rims for everything with really low pressures, for some scenarios it may be better, and sometimes it's pointless or just sucks
Then again I still ride my 35C's at 65 psi (minimum recommended on sidewall), .. the bike is used only in the city.

I'm very glad to hear you had zero problems running a 2.2" tire on 19mm rims. Yes I am getting to be a lightweight. This morning I weighed in the lightest in 20 years. 150.2 lbs.(5'7) When I started riding for exercise in August I was 160. When I retired 9 years ago I was around 165.

The Pathfinder's are a soft sidewall. I run the exact tire on my Sirrus. I've been running 40psi in it. I'll try 45 on my next ride. Nope I have no interest in running "Fat tires" That's what came installed on my new Sirrus(700x42) so when I picked up the Alibi I figured I would try the same tire on it. If I didn't like it would have a spare set for the Sirrus. PLUS they were on sale for $26 each. How could I resist LOL.

Thank you for your reply. Enjoy the day

Lee

700x35's are soon to be delivered for my Trek MultiTrack. Fingers crossed they arrive today

My winter project has been delivered today! Over next few months will be setting this up as a flat bar gravel or hybrid. Planning on putting on 650b Wheel/tire combo. Currently have the Chromoly fork, but the carbon fiber one will be delivered in a few days.

Planning on putting my Scott Sub Cross as much as possible back to what it was like when I purchased it. Then selling it this spring.

I have just joined the "Steel is Real" club!

Rebuilt my Giant FCR3500 back into a form close to its original form after running it with bullhorn or drop bars for years. Going to give it to my stepson to ride, but I'm definitely going to have to borrow it from him occasionally because it's still great to ride.
