Also, as I have discovered recently, low pressure means higher likelihood of pinch flats (where the tube gets torn because it's pinched between the tire and the rim).
I have a dilemma because people keep telling me that my old steel rims won't take pressures higher than about 40 psi, but the tubes and tires really need to be pumped up more than that to prevent flats.
