I'm not going to run them at 100 psi all the time, of course. Also, I would not consider 1.75 to be a balloon tire or fat tire, really. 26x2.35, sure, that's wide. I wanted the option to run higher than the 60 pounds give or take that a lot of tires in this range seem to max out at, and on my cargo and tandem I value toughness over weight savings. On my road bike, my priorities are different. I just thought it was unusual to find a tire in this size that was rated for elevated pressures and that someone might find it useful.
