    depends on many things..mainly your weight, then from there, type and brand of tire, type and brand of rim (for width), and type of riding you prefer.

    for example: i ride ~ 65% natural and 35% urban, i have a michelin comp 24.1 2.5 with a DH tube, i weigh ~165 lbs, with a try-all XXL rim. that all equals about 12-15 psi for me.
    i am going to get a michelin or maxxis which is smaller than my 2.5", and a regular tube, and run about the same pressure.

    Hmm. I'd just let out a lot of air. Then ride around as usual. If you hit your rim alot or your tire folds to the sides put more air in until it stops. Then you've got the right amount. It's all about having as little as you can get away with. That's my opinion anyways.
