Professional Tweaks, Tips & Reviews By "AJ" Picarello
I hope you find my Tweaks and Tips section helpful. If there is something you want to know about, send me an email and I will try to add that to one of my upcoming articles.

Have you wondered why pros can rail turns and not slide out? Besides perfect rider position, they have the correct tire for the conditions and terrain and proper pressure. Try running the lowest pressure possible without denting your rims. For rocky, high speed courses, run higher pressure. For slower, softer courses, (off camber, sloppy conditions) try lowering your pressure. Be careful not to let to much air out of a 3.0 wide front tire. With such a high side wall, the tire can roll over the edge of the rim on extreme g-outs. This can cause temporary loss of control. Use a spike type tire on loose grass or mud. For extreme sticky mud, run narrow tires with knobs spaced far apart. Tire compound is another issue. Softer for rock and hard pack, harder for loose, sloppy terrain. What do i run? (east coast) 24" tires, front and rear, nokian gazz. 3.0 front, 2.6 rear. For next month, shifting tips!!
