35-100 psi tires...

If a chart exists, I can't find it... at least not with a migraine!!!

Someone, please help me out!!!

I have 35-100 psi mtb tires. I weigh about 145-150lbs.
My riding is pretty much urban -with all the high curbs, deep potholes, broken glass, and metal boomerang shards you can imagine.

What pressure do you recommend I run my tubed tires at?

psi

I would probably go 60 or higher. Depends if you have straight fork to. If you do you may want to take a little off to compensate.

Thank you!!! I will start there... And, yes,...

...straight fork. I didn't think to mention the fork through my headache last night!!

It is an RST that I believe came stock on the bike, and was probably close to bottom of their line back in/around 2004 -if I have the date of the bike right.

I just bought it second hand, so I haven't yet been able to locate the travel specs on the fork.

Oh! And I forgot to mention wide sewer grates, heaped up gravel, construction zones... If only more of it were downhill...
