So I've been riding my Fuji Cross for the last few months (all on road) and having a great time. I've worked my way up to doing an 11 mile loop each of the past three weekends.
Tonight I thought I'd go out for a short ride around the neighborhood, so I pumped up the tires and took off. As I left, I looked down at my back tire (for the first time ever) and noticed it looked flat. Went home and checked the pressure and everything looked good.
The ride went fine, but I noticed a little tendency for the bike to slide around in back. This has probably been the case on every ride, but I just noticed it because I was worried about the back tire.
The bike wears Kenda 700 x 35 tires with a maximum recommended pressure of 85 lbs. I'm 6'6" and weigh 375. Is this tire going to blow out and put me in the ditch? Can I put more air in than the max. psi? If so, how much?
