    Kinlin Rims & Tires

    OK, so what am I missing?

    New Kinlin XR 270 & 300 rims, Velox rim tape, stock Bontrager 18-23 tubes.

    I appear to be getting a good seat w/my Krylion 23s. However, I can't seem to inflate these tires much more than 80-85 psi; whereas, on the Askiums that the Kinlins replace I had no problems getting up to 100-105 psi.

    Have used 3 different gauges all with the same result.

    What in the wide world of sports is going on?

    What am I missing? Do you mean they blow off above 85 psi, or that you can't get more air into them?

    Can it be? Have we met the real Charles Atlas?

    1. I do not claim to be an expert in bicycle mechanics despite my experience.
    2. I like anyone will comment in other areas.
    3. I do not own the preexisting concepts of DISH and ERD.
    4. I will provide information as I always have to others that I believe will help them protect themselves from unscrupulous mechanics.
