I'm with you on the Schwalbe's...great tread pattern and grip well, but I'm done with their paper thin sidewalls. I was running about 30 psi in the front on my Racing Ralph's as well, and if I went to say 28psi, I'd burp air on some log hops and whatnot.(I weigh about 180lbs if that helps with perspective)
I'm now running a 2.55 Weirwolf LT tubeless in front
... really happy with it.
BWPA -- Sort of off topic, but have you ever checked out www.cyclingdirt.com
? there's a section of video interviews there with the pro's discussing their bike setups. It's pretty cool.Edited by Tyrone Shoelaces - 7/31/2009 at 03:39 pm GMT
