The bike looks a lot better with some decent tires on. At 50 PSI they roll pretty fast. I've scrubbed 90% of them but need more seat time before I can feel confidant cutting turns.
looking good!

for dirt, you likely want them a lot softer than 50 psi. 30psi or less, even, unless you're on the heavy side.
