Fairly new to gravel biking (came from MTB a couple months ago) and I live in the Bay Area where I usually have to go 15-20 miles on road to get to the trails. Because of this, I’ve been running fairly high tire pressure to make the road section faster, since it does end up being at least half if not more of my mileage. But I did a couple rides with lower tire pressure and the difference while riding trails is huge. What do you all do in this situation? Keep pressure high for the road, drop it when you get to trails, and then pump back up for the road back home? Or deal with lower tire pressure on the way home, or just the whole time?
Also, wouldn’t mind help with good tire pressure starting points:
165lb with clothes, 18lb bike, about 5lb other stuff on the bike. 2.1” 650b tires
