    Air Pressure Suggestions

    So I recently purchased a fatbike and have been learning a lot about the air in the tires.

    What pressures are folks running for what conditions?

    Any suggestions on the best bike mounted pump for these fatties?

    The conditions will dictate but for a baseline start for fresh snow or sand 6r & 5f. For hardpack single or dbl track trail riding 10r & 8f and adjust as you ride to suit.

    Ok, I'll bite. There are endless variables on ideal fatbike tire pressure, only to be outdone by the endless threads on the subject. I weigh about 175ish, and ride a mukluk with rolling darryls and 27tpi nates. I've settled on about 9r 8f for rocky singletrack, if a dusting to 2 or 3 inches of snow I drop to 5r 4f, if deeper snow is involved I will deflate to the point where the sidewalls are on the verge of wrinkling, around 2.5r 2f for maximum flotation. Don't take these numbers as the rule or the norm, your mileage will most certainly vary.
    To appreciate the flowers you must also walk among s**t to know the difference
