That will get a Bridgestone X20 at 12 psi.
    Well there is your problem...

    Try what F5Dave uses. Mine are a few psi lower and do fine as well. A few psi higher shouldn't be an issue either.Try a few different ones untill it suites your riding stryle. I''ll bump the front ut up 4-6 psi if doing more tarmac riding..There is no "set in concrete" pressure". But at 14 psi you will be all over the place.

    Horses for courses. Pressure is varied according to the terrain you ride. We ride most commonly in the waimak trail bike park. 12psi is the minimum you run to avoid dented rims-15psi is better but I get away with lower as I weigh 75KG . However if we are on a loamy high country ride with less rocks and steep climbs and descents, we run lower and if wet, lower still.

    I run between 4 and 8psi with tublis as it gives a inside bottoming protection at 100psi mini inner tube. Never dented rim yet.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    What's this "we" bit

    I run whatever the fuck I set them at a while ago when I had a fuck to give, I find one pressure fits all

    Not sure if I'll make Mt Torlesse which would be a pity as it is a good one

    Mt Torlesse this weekend. Weather looking good, although some rain to kill the dust would be nice.....

    Where are you guys finding out about these rides?

    What ever advertising the organisers are doing is missing me completely...

    One of the many good things about owning a new Beta is that the factory Beta detailing crew will be waiting to clean, polish and service each lap my bike while I enjoy refreshments in the Beta Owners hospitality tent. True story. And yes D, the KDX is polished to within an inch of its life. Dont you be getting it dirty......
