Yeah, 45 psi *was* low. But the recent purchase of a floor pump with a gauge has opened my eyes to the errors of my ways. Before that I was using an extremely inadequate mini pump. Don't ask why,...

My commute's about 16 miles each way with the short route, 19 if I take the scenic path along the river. The short route is a blend of multi-use paths and busy streets (although I avoid the busy...
