    How low of a pressure can you go and has the inner bead ever come off??

    Thanks Jeff,
    So according to that thread 7-8 rocks, 5-6 snow, and "has not had any problems" probably means he has not lost an inner bead.

    That's what I thought too. I have had mine down to 6 in the rocks and haven't lost a bead yet. Doubt I'll go lower that that too, the tire was flat enough to conform to just about anything on the trail at 6 psi. If you want TR's plan on waiting a while. Mine took about 2 1/2 months to get here. They are well worth the wait though.

    Yup, that's about it.
