Q: Read “Finding the Right Tire Pressure for Your Mountain Bike.”
Would that guide work well for those of us that still use tubes?
—Steve, who still uses tubes
A: You can go by our tubeless chart and add 5 psi to everything. That will be just about perfrect. Just remember, tire pressure is a personal thing. Finding the right presure is an art, not a science. For everyone who may not have seen the chart, here it is again. Feel free to cut it out and put it on your workbench.
