I have read a lot of recommendations that say to run your mountain bike tires at around 30-40 lbs. For where I ride this is just too soft. I ride on pavement and on a bike trail or two made of smooth gravel.
So I cranked my PSI up to 60 this morning. I will ride it later today. What will I notice besides a rougher ride? Will I be more or less flat prone?
Also is it common for MTB tubes to lose a little air over time? I have ridden about 150 miles in the last couple of weeks and both of my tires got soft and spongey over that duration.
