Setting Your Tire Pressure

Riding your mountain bicycle with the proper
amount of tire pressure can make a big difference
in just how much control you have over your bike.

Setting your tire pressure too expensive will make for
poor contact with the ground and also make your
bike less manageable. Setting your tire pressure
too low will make your tires unpredictable and likewise
make them susceptible to pinch flats.

The proper amount of tire pressure in a.
mountain bike will differ between rider to rider and.
tire setup to tire setup. The conditions of your.
trail and the kind of terrain your riding will also.
greatly effect what tire pressure you ought to be using.
in your tires.

The trick here is to discover exactly what mountain.
bike tire pressure works for you and your setup throughout.
typical conditions. After doing this, you can find out.
to adjust your pressure for different trails and types.
of terrain as needed.

You must start by finding a trusted pressure gauge.
or a pump with a pressure gauge. Then, use this exact same.
gauge or pump anytime you are making changes. A.
gauge can be very incorrect, so if you switch around.
it you can make things far more challenging.

You must begin with a greater pressure of around 40 -.
50 psi. If you have a tubeless system, you should.
start lower, 30 – 40 psi. The more you weigh, the.
higher pressure you need to begin with. Try this.
pressure for a while and get a feel for how the tires.
take corners and loose dirt.

Drop the pressure by 5 psi in each tire and get a feel.
for how this new setup rides and how it compares to your.
previous setting. You ought to observe some enhancement.
in stability, and if you do not, drop the pressure by.
another 5 psi.

You desire to find the most affordable pressure you can ride with.
without sacrificing pinch flat resistance. A pinch flat.
occurs when your tire rolls over an object then compresses.
to the point where the tire and the tube get pinched.
in between the things and the rim on the wheel.

With tubeless tire systems, you can run much lower air.
pressure, as you do not have to fret about getting pinch.
flats. If you begin to damage your rims, burp air out.
along the bead, or feel the tire roll under the rim.
throughout difficult cornering, you have actually taken the pressure much.
too low.

As soon as you’ve found a comfortable setting for your tire.
pressure, discover what your tire seems like when you.
squeeze it with your hands. As soon as you know what your.
tires feel like you can constantly get the best air.
pressure – with any pump.
