@Endlessmike: Sometimes I feel like running tubeless is more hassle. You have to renew sealant every 3 months. And if you forgot to do it on time, you might get a flat on the trail anyway because your sealant is all dried up. I guess no system is perfect.

@transitter: Well, good question. I guess, I wanted to see if I could drop pressure by going tubeless. Turns out, I can't go much lower. I even considered going back to tubes recently but I'm still experimenting. For the gnarliest and rockiest trails I am still happy to have a tubeless system AND high pressure. But yea, I don't know the answer.

How big is this backyard? I am looking to move places and want to build something like this in my own backyard.

Finally someone with proper tire pressure! I don't know how everyone gets away with tire pressures in the low 20s. And yes, I do ride tubeless, Michelin Enduro tires and inserts.

How to Accurately Calculate What Spring Rate You Need
Here is a thought: As far as I can tell, the Fox coils range from 250 to 800 lbs/in with the average being 525. A quick google search tells me the global average weight of a human is 136 lbs. 525 lbs/in / 136 lbs = 3.86 lbs/in per lbs weight of a person. For my 170 lbs (without gear) x 3.86 that would give me about 656 lbs/in (while the equation gave me 637). To be fair this does not take travel, sag point, leverage ratio etc. into account but I think it could serve as a good sanity check to see whether you are roughly in the ball park.
