max or somewhere below, what do you say.
Why would you ride at a high pressure when the data says that it will make you go slower and be less comfortable? Velodrome? - TFcthomas said:and will get a wide variety of responses. A lot comes down to personal preference. I ride Vittoria Open Corsa's, 700x23 (I have found these to be about as round as Vredestein 25s) and ride them at 125psi. Work great for me.
I know plenty of others that ride at much lower pressure or ride much bigger tires. I rode Vredestein Fortezza 25 rear/23 front for quite awhile, but found I liked the ride of the Vittorias better and switched back. Don't last as long, but oh well.
about the same...I run Conti GP3000s 23s at about 110 and I'm about 200.geraldatwork said:I'm 210 lbs and use 700X23 Conti GP tires. I inflate both tires to about 105-107lbs. Sometimes the front a pound or so less depending where the last pump stroke leaves the pressure. I dont get any pinch flats at this pressure and find if I go higher not only is the ride more harsh but the tires wear out much faster especially the rear.
I used to run my rear tire at around 115-120 and noticed the rear started to square off at around 500 miles. Not saying wore out but could definately see the center beginning to flatten out. I since have a new tire on the rear ( I put the old rear on another bike) and after 1000 miles I'm at the point where the other tire was at 500 miles.cydswipe said:Me too, exact same.
