    RUSH tire pressure?

    New 2006 RUSH Team with stock tubeless tires. I'm 165 pounds. What's a good starting point? Thanks.

    It depends where you ride, how you like the bike to feel and the tire size but I would say 30 PSI is a pretty good starting point, maybe even less in the front tire.

    tire pressures are really personal

    I never run more than 30 psi, some mates (both faster and slower) run 50 psi

    I suggest you put whatever is recommended on the sidewall of your tire and then try different psi's (+/- 5 psi at a time) on the same track, then try another track in different conditions and see what suits you best.

    Tire Pressure

    Wally- As the other Men have stated tire pressure is a very personal preference but if it helps I run 36-37 lbs on my 2006 Rush Team if riding mt. trail and as high as 45-47 if XC type riding. Stock set up on bike-CrossMax and Crossmark.

    I'm always below 30 with UST tires. I try to go low just enough that I don't bang the rims right into rocks.
