    8 psi front and rear on the fatty, 30 front 35 rear on everything else or I peel the tubeless off the rims too easy and 100-110psi on the road bike.

    It’s a closely guarded secret. Even I don’t really know.

    High 20s rear and low 20s front, I think.

    This is one of those threads where someone cheerfully pipes up that – all this shows is how inaccurate everyone’s pressure gauges are – guffaw guffaw!

    2.25 tyres on old skool narrow rims – 30 frt 40 rear. These are the pressures. They’re hard-ish, like MTB tyres should be. Can’t stand lower pressures – the tyres seem draggy and the low pressure squirm gives inconsistent trail feedback (to my delicate little paws, anyway).

    I forgot to add, 2 of mine are at atmospheric.
