  • creepy crawler tyre

    I have just got my 07 kh 20" with the creepy crawler trye, the tyre is rated from 35 to 50 PSI, I was just woundering if I should run with it within the range or if I can run with it at a lower pressure as on my other uni i ran it at about 20 PSI

    Run it at whatever feels comfortable. 20 PSI is definitely safe, some people run it lower.

      Just as long as you don't have it so low that it "bottoms out" and hits the rim when you do drops. That is bad for your rim.

        ok, I have now let it down and its alot better I just thought that it was a unicycle tyre so the rating on it would be right for a unicycle.

          The best way for me to get the right PSI is to hop onto a skinny perpendicularly. This causes my tire to easily get pinched, so I fill up my tire so that when I am hopping onto a bar, or an edge of something, it doesn't bottom out.

            It's a rear bike tyre, unfortuntately, with the questionable exception of the coker and wheel TA tyre, there is no such thing as a 'unicycle tyre' at present. I used to run mine at around 25 psi, but i'm heavy and have little skill.
