I have a set of 700x35 Marathon Winters on my Touring bike. I'm generally riding with panniers so there is plenty of weight in the rear and not much weight in the front. I was riding home on icy roads with both tires inflated to about 55psi, the rear tire was ballooning on the sides a bit and the front looked fully inflated.
What tire pressures do those of you with drop bar bikes and rear panniers use? Much lower pressure in the front than rear?
I'm thinking my rear pressure could go up to at least 60 and lower the front to the high 40s. It was getting warmer on the ride home, does anyone find that warmer temperatures make the tires more flexible, hence justifying higher pressure than when its colder?
