    High enough to not pinch flat. It depends on how much you weigh, the terrain and your riding style. Probably somewhere between 30 and 90 psi.
    May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.
    May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. -Edward Abbey

    For CX racing, usually as low as you can go without pinch flatting. For mostly road use, as high as you can go without losing comfort.
