    CO2 question

    I've been using CO2 for my 23c tires and the 16g size works fine. I'm wondering how CO2 works for much larger tires? My hybrid has 700x35c tires, my mountain bike has the wide 26" tires while my touring bike has 700x37s. I know that I could experiment, but that would be wasteful. Does anyone know of a chart or formula that indicates the pressure that a 16g cartridge will inflate different size tires to? The 35s and 37s only need to get to 80 psi or a bit less.

    Thanks

    I run 37mm Cont. Touring Plus and a 12 oz. cart. works fine. Although I've never had to use it on the road.

    "The clear problem of the outlawing of insult is that too many things can be interpreted as such. Criticism, ridicule, sarcasm, merely stating an alternative point of view to the orthodoxy, can be interpreted as insult."
    Reading without understanding is useless

    "Some readers may characterize a post as trolling, while others may regard the same post as a legitimate contribution to the discussion, even if controversial." - go figure lol
