I run 55 to 65 and some guys I know do around that area too but there's others that say that's too little and dumb, it's personal preference

Those will not work, stop using them. They only go up to 50 and your tires hold double that! Car tires go up to like 44 so they don't need the gauge to go up high. Pump them til they're kinda hard.

I ride like 70-90 in the back and 75 up front. Gotta keep that shit rolling!

I like high pressure, around 90 psi, it´s personnal preferences.

But the weigth of the rider as aslo an influence on this, i'm pretty heavy, 90 kilos (around 200lbs for you).
So imagine a guy who weight 150lbs and run 70 psi, he will probably have the exact same feeling than me on my bike even if I run higher pressure..

Try different things and see what you like the most.

I like to keep it around 80.

I wouldn't recommend having your tires under 60. It just seems so slow to me but it's your bike so ride what you like.

That's your preference. I ride about 40-45 MAX in the front, 50-55 MAX in the rear, even though mine go up to 110 max.

That's just my preference though. I don't zip around bowls or anything like that so it doesn't make that big a difference to me unless I land really sketchy on a spin trick from high up.. Then I usually get a flat, but that rarely happens unless I forget to pump my tires up when they start getting low on air.

I tried riding them harder at like 60-70 PSI before and I just didn't like it. It made bump wallrides feel weird and hurt my wrists when I'd do big drops

go 75+ if you like going burly or just for hauling ass at gaps. Helps with big impacts, otherwise you're getting all rim and risk a flat.

Depending on what I'm doing I run 75-90 psi. If I'm jumping I use 75 if I'm crusing I run 90, if I'm jumping curbs I usually ride around 80. Anything less then 75 psi for me = flat spots in my rim and pinch flats.

70-80 def the best. it may hurt at first but youll get used to it in no time

I ride street and run 45-50 psi in the back and 20-40 psi in the front. Just run what psi feels good.

I run around 55 front and rear, I feel better on my bike I can hop higher and impacts don't hurt

I run 100psi front and back. I like hitting gaps and sometimes i ride up stairs and you really need as much psi as possible for that.

I never really measure it but I run it pretty much as hard as can be in the back and a little soft in the front. LowerPSI = easier flats when casing or landing awkward

in all seriousness, 20psi is plain dangerous.

I can't see 20psi being dangerous. The tire and side wall are stiff enough. I have run my front tire like this for over 2 years and not had on problem from it. It's not like the tire can pop off the rim with 20 psi holding it. Maybe with a different rim, but the Gsport roll cages holds on tight.
