    Lower tire pressure = lower rolling resistance

    This came up in another thread, but I thought it was so interesting that I thought I'd start another thread. Take it or leave it, dismiss it or embrace it, I just think it's pretty interesting: this article researched tire pressure and rolling resistance across several different tires, conditions and pressures. The findings will surprise you (or maybe they won't- but they surprised me ).
