Arrggh!!! What have I done to my poor bike?
Posted June 25, 2002 - 09:15 PM
My previous tire was a K695 (100x100x18)
I am not quite sure what to think. Is this tire too heavy and causing the suspension to float over bumps? Or maybe the taller side walls are to blame.. (Even though they are rock hard)
Right now I am running 14.5psi in the rear, but it feels considerably harder than the last tire. Has anyone ran this tire before? Did you run lower psi?
I am running mainly dry hard packed single track near my house at the moment, with some loose rock, and some hard rock surfaces

I run 10 to 12 pounds unless I'm worried about a pinch flat, then I run 15. The 3 pound difference is noticeable, but not as much as a 3 pound difference up front...
The larger tires will give you the sensation of overpowering the front end. I don't really notice that anymore because I only run the larger size.
You may consider running a little bit more sag than you would with the smaller tire.
Hope this helps.
