I'm replacing the Battlewings front and rear with these next week, what pressure are you all running on these? Thanks.
I mounted 705Rs to replace the original Trailwings last fall. I've been running them on my Wee with 36psi rear and 33psi front, which is simply following the recommendations in the manual. They seem fine. I've been on sandy and gravel roads where, arguably, dropping five pounds on either end might have helped, but I'm here to type about it, so...
Because there is no smooth line around the middle of the tread they're a bit of a rumbly tire o smooth roads, especially after the smooth and bald Trailwings they replaced, but I did a couple of hours of mostly slab and secondary roads today, and they're fine.
And if I think they're going off with fewer miles on them I won't feel as bad replacing them in shorter service intervals for half the price of Anakee 3s or something similar
