If it's not broke, don't fix it.xl_cheese said:So my pump has been off. It turns out that before a race a couple weeks ago I was checking my air pressure with a buddies new pump. I realized that I had been riding and racing with 20psi for a couple years now. yikes! I went ahead and raced that afternoon with 20. Didn't want to change anything the day of the race.
I run stan's with nanoraptors, the regular kind.
Do you guys think the extra low pressure could be slowing me down? I know I can corner really well, but maybe it's more sluggish going on the smooth stuff?
I've never had burp problems on my bike or had the tire roll off the rim. I have had burps on the SS tho when using eclipse.
Should I keep riding the 20psi or bump it up to 30?
I weigh 150.
I imagine you'd go faster on the flats with 30 but you'd be sacrificing traction. I guess it depends on what's more important to you.
What's stopping you from just incrementally increasing your pressure say by 2psi and seeing how that treats you? You'd learn a lot more doing that than anything else IMO.
