My new bike in planning is going to be a road bike with 700C tyres. I am planning on going for a 28mm wide tyre for a bit of extra comfort, however am I right in saying that comfort really comes from the pressure and not the width. I have some 35mm tyres on one of my bikes which have a pressure rating of 100psi, I want my new bike to be able to handle the bad roads better than my current 23mm tyre'd road bike (120psi).
I guess the 28mm tyres will be around 100psi too, is this the MAX or the recommended?
Is it the case that pressure matters more than width?
My 35mm tyres are specialized armadillo nimbus tyres, would it be possible to run these at less than the rated pressure?
Are there any bombproof tyres that will be more comfortable? (if it comes to it, I would prefer more puncture protection over comfort)
