Doing Leadville this Saturday. Anyone have any suggestions as to a good pressure to run my tubeless 29ers at?

seriously? i guess it depends on a bunch of info you didn't provide.

let's see, it is mostly boring double track, so maybe on the higher end of whatever you are usually comfortable on.

I ran 38 psi front and back on 2.0 Barro race tires (tubeless). Worked fine.

Unless you weigh close to 300# that was way too much pressure. The formula Stan's and most people use as a starting point is rider weight divided by 7 then minus 1 for the front and plus 2 for the rear. I weigh 175# and that works out to 24 front and 27 rear.

I have a set of Barro RAce TNT 2.0 29er's on Shimano 29er wheelset and the TNT's have a stiffer sidewall than the standard tire so I actually run 23,25 in that set.

It might have been too much but it sure was a fast setup. No handling issues. I'll most likely run the same setup next year.

What tires? I have 29er with rocket Ron's now. They are ust but I am running tubes. Leadville is getting closer and I can't decide on tires.
Thinking about a wtb vulpine for rear and something with a little knobs up front.
Or should I go semi slick fr and rr?
Should I go tubeless ? I would get a Stan's kit if so, but I want to get things worked out so I have time to dial things in.

.....Scott scale 29er and I am 155 lbs or 68kg now. I think I can drop a few more lbs before August.
I have been running ~35 psi on my tubed rocket Ron's lately. I feel pretty comfortable with that on mostly fire roads and double track.

Thanks in advance
