"Actually issue 13 just arrived. Thanks for the info, just the kind of thoughts I was looking for.
This year I will be on a tubular set with Grifo's with a set of clinchers in the pit that I can swap out tires if need be. "
"I think the one thing to remember, is that at least here in Norcal, is that drier does not always mean less bumpy. In fact, sometimes the dirt is so dry it's like rock hard concrete, but not smooth at all. On a bumpy course -…"
"Drier higher. Advice that rhymes is always right.
In all seriousness you'll go a bit higher for dry otherwise you feel like you're riding a flat and it's slower. In the mud you want all the surface area you can get, so lower…"
"Lots of variables. But at 180 lbs., I go with 30 psi back, 27 psi in front. Drier conditions I generally go up a few psi, and muddy/wet/slippery conditions I go as low as I can - until the tire bottoms out too much or folds up in the corners.
I know we can get crazy with how you ride, how much you weight, and a million other specifics. My question is rather general in nature and asks what kinds of pressure do you typically run for certain courses. Lets assume that if the course has a mix of condidtions (some dry, some wet sections) you run Xpsi... If it's a dry/fast course, do you run higher or lower pressure than you typically would?If it's a soft/wet course, do you run lower or higher pressure than you typically would? See More
