Meaningless question without more details.steve695 said:I don't, I was just curious if I should be running more than 60
60 sounds very high. I'm over 220lbs and I've never ran with over the recommended PSI. I'll vary the PSI based on the trails and conditions, but I'll average around 35-40 for most rides.steve695 said:
The topic does not say it all. It depends on rider weight and riding style, the type of riding, terrain, and bike setup (at least).steve695 said:
Still not handing much out are you?steve695 said:I weigh 74 kilograms
I ride from street to singletrack and downhill when I can. A bit of everything really.
fwiw these tyres are on my gf's bike @ 18-22 (generally 20) psi and theyve never come off the rim. obviously, ymmv.daleksic said:Specialized Fasttrak LK @ 35psi XC
These tires come alive at 30 psi. I tried last weekend at 45-50psi but they were maybe above average at higher PSI. At 25psi they will come of the rim.
imho that is WAAAAAAAY too high for the trails.steve695 said:I run them on 60
Alright thanks.Offrampmotel said:I ride with a Panaracer Smoke/Dart combo. I usually run them at around 35 psi. Once I tried them at around 45-50 psi and had a lot of trouble on the trails.
60 sounds way too high for off-road use, but it all comes down to personal preference. If you're happy where you're running them, there's no reason to change.

I bet she doesn't weight 185 pounds either...
I can do 25 psi but only on easy riding, as soon as I kick it a bit it will peel right off. I can do 30psi safely. These tires are probably one of the best I've ever ridden. Next time I'll go with the Fasttrack LK Pro version.
Enough opinions yet n? <G>steve695 said:
