    I like 18 lbs on or off road. Too much air in the 241 seems twitchy on the pavement. Trial and error.

    12-14 lbs front around 10-12 in the back. I weight @165 lbs. I am lazy and usually don’t air it up for pavement unless I know I will on the stret a long time.

    12 in the dirt (maybe 10 if real soft with no rocks), and 18 on pavement, if i'm going more that 10 miles or so. I take the OEM rear down to about 14 in the dirt, maybe 16 if it's real rocky.

    On road 18 seems good... i don't ride much on pavement though. Off road 10 with a extra heavy duty tube i really like.
