First 100 miles or so. After that I've run it anywhere between 27 and 31 on pavement. As low as 23 on dirt. Rode rocks, 2-up, no rim problems.

Whether or not you like the 908 front, it will get about half the wear as the Karoo 2 front. Depending on your riding style, you might or might not get 2500 miles out of a 908 front.
