I know this is a very common topic but I am not a particularly heavy rider, 130 lbs, and want to know what is ideal for me and others my size. I run 20” vans cult 2.4 inch tires and have ridden pretty low psi without issues. I’m just in need of input as I ride psi for street and DJ that would not work well in park

I run 95 psi and switch between 2.25 donnasqueaks and 2.1 grifters . I ride park and street about equally. Feels good

It really comes down to your own preference. I’m 110 LBS and run 90 PSI for everything.

Right now I run mine at about 60 lbs. I weight about 135. I don't like to go over max psi of tires but next tires I plan to run 80 or 90.

I have cult all 2.5 tires I run 25 psi when I do street and 55 on bowls and dirt. The bigger volume tire doesn’t need to be inflated as much to get the same amount of grip

You’d be surprised. Big tires are sick

The bigger the tire and the lower the psi, the more rolling resistance. There's no way that wouldn't feel sluggish to me, but it all comes down to preference. No hate though, I dont discriminate! Some people like .45acp, but I prefer 9mm. They both get the job done

for pump tracks i run 80 psi for park/street 70 and for dirt it depends how the dirt is/ where I'm going but usually around 60-80

You’ll have to experiment. High psi is faster and twitcher, but kinda harsh on the body. Low psi is slow and but feels springy, kinda like you’re bouncing on your bike

My manual air pump busted and my powered one doesn't seem to want to pump any of my tires up past 55, even when I have the knob set to 100 psi. So I don't know what anything past 50-55 pounds feels like. LOL. I gotta fix that.

My compressor is almost as old as me. I need to go over to my neighbors and ask to use his nice compressor set up. Good thing is I have a good gauge.

Do you guys prefer manual pumps for any reason? On the youtube I always see guys using a hand pump.
