    What tire pressure do you keep when riding natural terrain (rocks and stuff) compared to like wooden picnic tables and benches?

    I find that when I am hopping up picnic tables that sometimes my tires don't grip that well and I slip off. If I pump up my tires more I loose the bounce in my tires.

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    Same all the way through, wet or dry- urban or natural.

    Before running less pressure for natural and wet stuff made sense, nowadays we have good tires that can actually ride on those things w/o problems.

    i vary my PSI between 10 and 20 depending on what i'm riding on - my style changes.
    granted i don't whip out a gauge, but its thereabouts.
