Road Cycling Tyre Pressure And Over Inflation

When you are getting into road cycling is is quite natural to want to pump your tyres up to be rock solid, the harder the tyre the faster the ride, right?

If the roads you ride are super smooth like polished glass, then pump away, but if in reality you are riding on everyday roads, with everyday riding conditions, a better option is about 90-100psi depending on your body weight.

With tyre pressure around this mark you will get a much more comfortable ride and still be quick when you feel like its time to break away from the group.

At Leading Edge Bike Service, Mermaid Waters, we will check and adjust your tyre pressures as part of our our bicycle servicing packages to help you have the best, smoothest ride possible.
