I'm about 188. I'm running the PDXs for the first time this year, so I only have 2 races on them so far. Last race I went at 32/36 on a hard dirt course with very few rocks. If racing the same course again, would go just a little lower (they were bouncing loose just a bit on the fast downhill corners, and never seemed close to bottoming out). There's probably not a course out there I'd run them higher than 35/38.
Great tires, btw. I've been surprised at how well they handle loose, dry Colorado dirt, given that they're billed as mudders.
Sweet. thanks guys. I'd still like to see some more replies to this post though...out of curiosity.
Brian, I've heard lots of folks say that. They seem to rapidly usurping the mud 2's as the best all-around tire out there (and one of THE best in slop).
Hellbelly, how does the back tire at 51 feel? seems like that may get a little stiff on ya in off camber or fast corners.
You should be but try it out on your pre-ride/warm-up lap. Bounce up and down a little and see if you bottom out. If you do, add a couple pounds. If not, take a little out and give it a go again. No way to find out what works until you try it.
Also, get a reliable gauge that is yours. The pump gauges are crap.
