What is everyone's tire pressure preference and what conditions do you run that pressure in? Thanks everyone.

depends on the tires and depends on the conditions. on a particularly fast, dry course, i've run my tires at 70 lbs, and on a particularly rough, boggy course, i've run them at 55. i ran them as low as 50 at on e race last year, but i pinch-flatted at the lip of a footbridge....

yea I found any where below 55 I pinch flat too but I do weigh in at 190-195 lb. I perfer the higher pressure if I can get away with it b/c I make most of my time sprinting on the pavement.
