    Tire casing plays a big role in the acceptable pressure range too. Tougher casings tend to tolerate lower pressures better without fold over in corners or squiminess in general. Additionally, lighter casings can feel mushy if you don’t have the pressure just right, while tougher casings seem to have a bigger sweet spot for acceptable pressure. For context, I’m 150lbs on a rigid bike; currently tough casing front at 16psi and lightweight rear at 23psi. 21mm internal width alloy rims. I like my pressures as low as possible and hit rim (lightly) on most rides. Mostly technical singletrack on loam with roots.
