Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

RIBMO 28c - Lowest Real World PSI

I'm hoping to get a little more cushion out of my 28c RIBMO rear tire. It's got 80psi on it as the minimum, but I'm wondering what's actually the minimum pressure I could use without worrying about pinch flats. I'm about 170lbs and I'll be riding in Seattle with a minimum of curb-jumpin' and hot-doggin'.

I hear y'all got some decent local beer. I look forward to burning off a lot of brew on those hills.

That's good to know but I just bought this tire. I'll keep that in mind in the future.
