    mini poll what size tires and what PSI do you run them at?

    reading though this forum I notice that there are a lot of us big guys on a lot of different tires (and different sizes) running different pressure... so out of curiosity I was wondering

    1. how much you weigh
    2. what size tire
    3. what brand/model tire
    4. what pressure are you running

    26x1.95 knobbies
    7 year old stock tires on junk Walmart mountain bike
    60 psi (65 psi max pressure listed on tire. The gauge I have doesn't go beyond 60 psi.)
    I can see the tire flex and flatten a bit when I'm sitting on the bike. Next year I will remedy it with a totally new "good" bike.

    3. Front Vittori Rubino Rear Gator Hardshell
    4. 120/120

    I just replaced the front at 5500 mi, and the rear, for the third time. The first two rears were Vittoria, the third was Continental. All got roughly the same mileage.
    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.
