    In addition to what/where your riding people should also list their weight. 21psi isn't going to work for everyone.

    I'm running 25psi front/27psi rear on WTB 2.2 Wolverines tubeless and weigh 175 riding rooty/rocky New England trails. Works great, had it at 30psi front/rear last week and was deflecting all over the place.

    Thanks for the quick replies this weekend I'm going to try 24psi front tire and 26psi rear. My current tires are nobby nic 2.35 with tubes and I'm about 190lbs. Another question for people on this thread has anybody tried han dampf tires thinking about running one in the front of my ride just wondering if its a worthy upgrade over nobby nic I ride in a mix of gravel and hardpack and it all mud right now or snow
