    Whats a Good Tire pressure for my new, vittoria rubino pro III

    Finally got my weight down to 25 and decided to go with a more narrow tire.

    I went from 700x28's to 700x23's.

    I bought 150TPI vittoria rubino pro III's they call for 100-145psi , what's a good pressure for me?

    Right now I have 130f and 135ish rear


    So far the ride is nice, much less bouncy then my old kojaks and I also noticed they soaked up the old brick roads really well. Almost too well its kinda weird...

    i ride the open corsa cx. i have been running them at 110-115 and im 225. when i was 270 i ran them at 235. probably not nessessary but i had the idea of wanting a harder faster ride. was it faster i dont know. but im faster now anyways and kinda like a not so harsh ride. i get less beat up by the end of the ride with the animals i ride with. personal preference i guess.

    Some days your the windshield and some days you are the cyclist. either way it doesn't look like its going to be a good day for you.

    I'm 190 and I've been running the Pro 2's at 95 and 105. Felt a little slow and too soft today. I'm going to try 100 and 110 next time.

    Whatever gives a 15% deflection is about right.

    ..And running 23's for a heavy rider is just silly: you'd actually be faster on wider rubber except in very special circumstances (eg a time trial if you were really fit and unusually aero for a clyde) - and you'd have much better braking and turning grip. But - "They use them in the Tour!"

    I haven't had them on very long but I have to say my ride quality has improved.

    I had my longest ride this weekend ever, 35 miles/2hr 15min... I've rode for an 60-90 minutes on my old cheap stock schwalbe 28cm tires

    23's are pretty standard on most road bikes... I really don't want to part of the wide vs skinny tire debate.


    Going to try 135/140 tomorrow
