Just curious as to what pressures you run...

Please state:
pressure
tyre & tube
weight
wheelset
tubeless, etc.

I use 28-32psi on the front and rear.
I use Nokian boazobeana X tyres & nokian ultralight or continetal tubes.
I use the non-ust Crossmax wheelset (but next week, the new one!!)
I use no sealant of any kind.

I ride a ghetto tubeless setup......homemade rim strips made from 20" presta tubes from recumbents (see ma' recumbents HAVE brought something useful into the world!!!) cut in half longitudinaly, with Ghetto Juice....aka 1/2 water....1/2 liquid latex from hobby shop.
I run Huchinson Python airlights/ Huchinson Mosquito Airlights/ or WTB Nanoraptors .....with 22 psi front and 24 psi rear....except in training funrides, when I run 22 front 20 rear....I used to ride 20/18 but my rims were suffering dearly
