Tubeless pressure

I'm doing my first ride on a newly installed tubeless setup and was wondering what pressure would be good to start with? At 175 I'm not real light, but I'm not exactly talking downhill or freeriding either. Any suggestions would be great.

What does it say on the side of the tire? Fill it to the average of the two numbers and it should be good. But since IDK if there's any difference between that stuff on tubeless ones, wait for another reply. Or google.

You can run significantly lower pressure on a tubeless setup with no chance of pinch flats. But you don't want to run so low that you bottom out onto the rim! Some run as low as 28. A less pressurized tire hooks up better. Drawback is it's slightly slower. Experiment, because it's your arse riding it...

What kind of tires, and what kind of conditions. You can make an argument for different pressures for every different situation.
