Pump up your tires to max psi on side wall. If you want the extra grip, get knobby tires.
Exactly. And even with max psi, i end up blowing a lot of tubes. Mostly because they're like the $4 Bell ones, and they always tear at the seams when they get up to that high pressure. I really like my new extra thick tubes though.

THanks MY26INCHCRUISER for the suggestion. On the Danscomp website, however, it says those are rated at 100psi. I would like to ride my tires at a low/comfy pressure. I like to FEEL the road and ROLL over it. There are definitely such things as puncture resistant tires. At least, I know we have them in 700c road tires. My Maxxis Re-Fuse 23mm will not flat, as low as I run them, or as badly as I have worn them. I will check out the Odyssey, as they do have lower knobs than what I have now. I would at least prefer the feel, but I don't run my current tires at 100...prob 60. I'd like to have them around 40 or 50
I'll back up MY26INCHCRUISER's choice. I run the Ody Aitken 24" up front & the Ody Path 24" in back. I run them both at 60-70 psi & it works great for me.
Personally people who run low psi (60 or less) really bug me. Just a pet peeve of mine.
