    Tire pressure on 2010 HiFi Plus

    New to these forums so I apologize is this thread has been discussed before.

    I am also the proud owner of a 2010 HiFi plus.

    I am curious as to what tire pressure range should I stay in.

    I know tire pressure differs between riders and conditions however being new to the sport I am not sure what tire pressure window I should stay in to ride safe and avoid pinch flats.

    I should add that I am a clyde at 6' and 230lbs.

    I looked in the Clydes forum for tire pressure recs but became confused do to all the wheel sizes and spoke styles out there that require different pressures. I dont even know the specs on the tires my HiFi came with.

    I figured a fellow GF brother will help me out.

    Thanks.

    I run 35psi front and 32psi rear with tubes.

    I am 6'8" 230lb.

    I was riding a 2008 HiFi 29 Plus, but just received my 2010 HiFi Pro replacement frame.

    I'm a little lighter and was running 32 with tubes but I just went tubeless. Now I am running about 28.

    hey...just thinking, if you guys went to some of the newer casing that are big volume, then you could run lower pressures and get some great results.....RK ss 2.2 for cross country, and the Nobby Nic 2.4 tires would work for anything and everything!

    Then just keep going down in 'psi's until things get wierd....35psi is a good starting point for the big volume tires.

    I run a set of FAT ALBERTS at 20psi plus and they roll great and grip anything.

    enjoy
