    That guy's setup is weird for a ton of reasons. Higher pressure in front? But then softening the fork? And how is he not rolling that rear tire off the rim?

    I bumped mine to 140. Very happy I did. Partly because of travel, partly because of geo, and partly because I ditched the pike, which was feeling pretty undergunned on this bike.

    If I slow pedal a 32 x 50, I go the same speed as if I just walk. I've timed this. I don't get the desire for a 26t - that's like sub-crawling speed.
