On the road I ran anywhere from 28 to 32 front and rear. I will be getting a air pump to carry on the bike. I only use my hand pump when I have to. But It takes a long time and is a lot of work. On the cr250 I always run 15psi f and r. Set it and for get it. Ben
OK, that's what I was thinking, std street pressure of 22 f & r.

Windrat, good point on the nails. I'll get some tire irons, a small can of WD-40, some vulcanizing patches, a portable bicycle pump, and a small C clamp. This allows for in situ local patching versus wheel removal.

All good stuff, thanks!

Earl. Two things. 1. What the hell are you doing up so early on a Sat? 2. I carry a spare f and r tube and patches. My reason is that patches don't always work on our kinds of flats. Most flats on a ds bike is a pinch flat. That make a bigger hole on a tube than a thorn or nail. What I do is change the tube for a new one. The tubes I carry are not the heavy duty kind. I carry those because they are lighter and easier to install on the trail. When I get home I always change the tube back to a heavy duty tube. The reason for the patches Is on multi day rides I patch the tube for a back up. I change the patched tubes out asap, just for piece of mind. Also there is no worst feeling than having a patched tube go flat on you. Ben

I'm up at 5:30 every morning, I'm just use to it.

Good points on the spare tubes and patches. Man, I feel totally unprepared compared to you guys. It'll take me a bit to round everything up.

Damn, I passed right by there (via FWY) and thought of stopping by on my way home from a road ride and hiking, but I was way too tired and just wanted to get home - or find a comfy sofa.
Would of made more of an effort had I known you guys where there.

Joel, I had a TW that I bought for my wife a couple of years ago.
Fun bikes in more than a couple of ways. Congrats!
