Re: Optimal Tire Pressure for High Speed Riding
most cheap cruiser tires are rated at 30-35. they'll handle 30mph all day long at that pressure.
better tires rated for higher inflation can be pumped up to whatever's comfortable for you.
bikes are a low weight vehicle. the tires don't heat up like cars or mc's. they can also add a bit of suspension. i never run mine over 40 on the street. city streets are cracked and bumpy. running tires at full pressure gives a harsh ride.
