Optimizing Your Tire Pressure for Your Weight
This is the best article we have found suggesting proper tire inflation for a bicycle and the reasons behind it. While this article was published in 2006, many other studies have been published in the meantime by Continental Tires and others, validating this information. Most recently, Lennard Zinn, renown bicycle mechanic, published a Technical FAQ consistent with the information found in this article.
If you don’t have time to read the reasons why, just skip to the chart, find the proper inflation for your tire size and weight, and get out your pump. Enjoy better performance, a smoother ride, and safer handling!
