    That's a bit low. Especially for someone around the 250 mark.
    Those pressures would work as long as the tires get very hot, very quickly.
    Those were my track pressures (cold) when I was running the B-stones.
    I would recommend 25f/28r, cold.

    I run 24f/24r on my BT016s. I am 215lbs. Best pressure I have found on them.

    Thanks guys this is all giving me a good place to start but now there's a dam storm and we've had like 6-8 inches of rain in like two days so she sits warm,dry and alone.
