    Maxxis Forekaster 2.6 & Ardent Race Tyre pressure

    Just got a Forekaster 29x2.6 and 29x2,35 Ardent Race for my SC TB3, weighing in around 200lbs/90 kg with Camelbak - what kind of tyre pressure should i aim for on 29mm IW Carbon wheelset?

    I'm about the same weight and ran 22lbs up front on the forekaster.

    The 2.6 is going to be more sensitive to getting the pressure right. Basically run it as low as possible without getting rim strikes or squirm.

    I run my 2.6 forekaster between 20-22 psi.

    I'd be looking for tips on the Ardent.....Rekon may be better suited.

    The Forekaster 2.6 is not that much wider than the 2.35 AR, so would recon the pressure should be fairly similar.

    I ran 2.6 DHR and 2.6 AR in 27,5 on my old bike with 29iw rims, and ran at 16 PSI front and 18 PSI rear.

    Just had a few rounds on the local single track and tried out 21 PSI front and 23 PSI rear, its not 100% dialed in but not far off. Can it be right I can comfortably ride 23 PSI rear?

    Im comfortable at 20-21 in my Forekaster in front. I have to run closer to 25-26 to avoid rim strikes in the rear with an Ardent Race. Im 180 lbs riding weight. Using 30 iw carbon rims.
