Anyone here ride bicycles?

I am putting together an old road bike. Bought some tires and it reads 120 PSI. Can this be right?

ya I do a little, but not as much as I should.... I would say no on the pressure but it depends on what type. Some of the street racing tried can go up pretty high but I'm not sure if that high... lol

Yes R1L should be considered an avid cyclist after all he rode his bike to work once this year


I only ride Mountain bikes, and tire pressure will vary depending on the tire you use and the surface/conditions you are riding in.

typically road tires are about 110-120. i leave it about 100-110. figure since i'm riding on the street and not a speed oval, i could use a little bit more give if i hit a pothole.

Carefull with the High PSI - you're tires might go there - I have tires that I run 200PSI in but I need special rims to run those kinds of PSI.

Make sure your old rims can run over 100 PSI or don't do it. Last thing you want is a rim letting go at any proper speed.

BTW - there will be no warning.

Don't exceed 80 PSI and you shouldn't have a problem.

Just make sure your rim isn't concaved. That's a sure fire indication that it's fugged.

Take a pic of it and post it - I should be able to see if it looks nackered.

You will feel it if it's concaved. If it is, bin it.

No that's not a bad sign for the rim, it's a bad sing for the tube. Most light weight tubes bleed air like they have a flat. If you pump 100 PSI into Welter Weight/Light Weight or RACE tubes you'll be putting air into them every few days. I used to run THORN PROOF Tubes in my tires because they would take 100PSI and only lose a small amount of air 4 or 5 PSI a week. But I could run over all kinds of nasty shit and never get flats. Now I just run Specialized Fatboys with Racelite Tubes - NEVER get flats but I'm taking the pump to them every morning before riding to work. Racelites bleed air like a bitch. 20PSI a day, until they get to 60PSI then the tube stops bleeding air. Fuggin Osmosis .

Pic is me on my Moutain Bike - running 30PSI TUBELESS!!!!!!!
