65 to 70 PSI is where you want to be. Honestly i have no idea how anyone thinks they are really soft. They are fucking rock solid at 70 PSI, Fuck knows how anyone runs 110 PSI!!

I've always ran my tires at 60 - 70 psi.

I tried 110 once and got a puncture the next day, it was so sore too.

I run whatever tube I can get. They are all made by the same couple of companies, and rebadged. Same quality for similar priced basic tubes.

And just so you know, I run 100-110 PSI, and I weigh like 240. Tubes are tubes, that's all there really is to it.

Actually the exact opposite. More pressure = less chance of pinch flats. Also all tubes are the same.

This, only I'm 260, haha. Much less than 80, and my Aitken starts feeling squishy.

I run my tires at 75 PSI at least, least is 70 and that already feels way too soft. 90 PSI is the max. When I first started, I ran 115 PSI literally just cause I thought it felt "nice". Little did I know, one summer, it was over 100 degrees and I had not watched my gauge and the sidewall blew and I had a slime tube. Slime went everywhere and I woke up from a sleep cause it was THAT loud. Learned my lesson and it honestly feels like crap to be riding on rock hard tires.

@ OP- since they're not extremely hard you're probably running 75-80 if i had to guess, 110 is fucking hard. I used to get nervous when pumping mine up that high.

Lately i've been sticking to 45. It's low but i haven't had any problems with pinch flats yet so I'm going to leave it here until i do. Really like the grippy and cushy feeling of lower PSI.

Dude you can't be serious. Are you that fucking dense? Just get a new gauge. Or better yet, just air up your tires and go ride. Don't worry about psi

Same problem with me, i broke my gauge, pump them up and ride and if it doesn't feel right then add more air.
