    I’m new to road riding. Is the hardness of your tyres a cock waving exercise?

    No it’s a pumping them up right for their intended use excersice.

    I’m a bit out of touch, but it was – 110/120 for road riding, 120 for racing, 12/150 for time trialing and circuits and 200 for track as a rule of thumb’ish.
    My tyres say 175 max and at 110 they still feel squishy

    I am amazed anyone is running tyres (and not tubs) over 140psi. Seen rim walls blown out at these sort of pressures.

    Cant see why anyone would want more than 115 psi in a ‘tyre’ unless you weigh a tonne.

    Obviously people time trialling/track may have differnt idea’s but generally cant see the need. Even tubs feel shit with too much pressure when road racing.

    When we did long races or rides and if the roads were in a state, we’d start off with a higher pressure so you’d reach an ideal in the latter stages. Though this probably isn’t as relavent with things like 100ks.
