    psi

    Just wondering what PSI everyone is running for your "urban assault" rides. I've been running 45psi with the k-rads 2.3, but have been getting an abnormal amount or pinch flats lately. I tried running higher, but don't like the feel. So, what are all you urban runners riding? I need to add I'm around 165-170lbs

    I'm around 155-160. I'm running tioga dowhill knobby tires that I've had laying around for 9 years or so. Not the ideal street tire but nice when I ride on a trail.

    I run about 60 when I'm on cement.

    In the neighborhood of 80-100 PSI
    In the great Ford vs Chevy debate, I choose Porsche.

    Damn, I've been running 35psi. I do hit dirt trails on-route. Never thought to go as high as 60psi and weary bones prolly love for it.

    when i bought my K2, it'd been so long since i'd ridden that i had no pump to tell psi, so i just ignored it and ran them kinda squishy. my friend let me borrow a pump, and i was doing trails and roads at less than 30 psi!!! MTB Weirwolfs are the best tires ever. no pinch flats, no other flats, knobby and slow for road, but great for handling on any trail conditions (except muddy). so i ride them anywhere from 35-65psi, and i weigh 150.
