Its the pounds of pressure per square inch of your tire.

It's force per unit area, not pressure per unit area. :p

Is that tire weight were talking about?

135 front 120 rear on my BMX.

80 front and back on my fixies.

Cheeto 01-21-08 05:44 PM

wow lol.
Im not going to waste time answering questions that people probably already know lol
it the measure of air in something.
its the force exerted per square inch.
its the unit of measurement for pressure.

I run about 172-206 kiloPascals

Trekbikedude 01-22-08 09:09 PM

oh
 
make sure you run a Kevlar bead, I heard they're lighter.

Maybe not, but I'm guessing you've got a Ph.D in dumbsas!

...no. No it is not.

Cheeto 01-23-08 08:14 PM

gastro, that was great!!!
hey while were on the topic of PHD's and stuff,
does anyone have a mojor in math? lol
Im having some Pythagorean Theorem and simplifying radical Problems LOL!


ANyway,
I ran 60 in my BMX also, until it was stolen =(

Pythagorean theorem is easy. Radicals I hate with a passion. What troubles are you having?

Cheeto 01-23-08 08:28 PM

Just was never taught how to simplify the dang things (my algebra teacher got up and left the school one day, never came back.... so he screwed us ALL) and now in geometry its killing me LOL

i got the whole a2+b2=c2 thing
but Simplifying radicals is killing me

like this one word problem here:
A small commuter airline flies to 3 cities whose locations form the vertices of a right Triangle.
The total flight distance (from a-b-c-a is 1400 miles.
it is 600 miles from the two cities that are farthes apart. Find the other two distances beween the cites.

to sum that up Is what im getting is the Hypotenuse is 600, and the two legs are unknown.
i cant got anyfarther lol.
-- BTW this is 10th grade math.

EthanYQX 01-23-08 08:29 PM

Can't help ya there, I'm failing math.

Cheeto 01-23-08 08:33 PM

LOL, i'll soon be failing..

i have a 51 in spanish... thanks to a quiz... she gave us a quiz (25% of grade) THEN tought us over the stuff on the quiz... and Im normally an all A student...
=(

giant rules!!! 02-04-08 04:55 PM

i keep mine at 50psi...it keeps them hard for climbs, yet, they still have traction when you want to go down.

EthanYQX 02-04-08 05:30 PM

I run slicks at 80 on mud.

Cheeto 02-04-08 06:28 PM

I run bontrager connection trails at 63

While At Rome 02-07-08 03:27 PM

55 or so psi. 15 psi jesus. after i got 3 flats in 1 day i decided to go from 40 up to 55 psi.

Wouldn't that depend on the type of riding your doing ?

I run 25 - 30 psi on the downhill bike on loose sketchy tracks. More tyre surface area for traction. If your not rolling fast enough on a downhill track (?) put some pedals in.

Obviously run them higher on the XC bike.

Set up a system of equations, one being x+y=800, the other being x^2+y^2=600^2, then solve for either x or y in the first equation, plug it into the second and solve for the remaining variable. The answer is 258.579 miles and 541.421 miles. x and y are the two unknown distances. Didn't you say you wanted to go to a military academy...?
