How do you adjust tire pressure for the way you ride?

Optimum Bicycle Tire Pressure

Don't be silly! Finding the right tire pressure for the way you ride isn't rocket science. Take to memory these descriptions to help you make a good decision when choosing your bicycle tire pressure:

• High pressure is best for rocky, high-speed courses
• Lower pressure is best when riding on slower, softer courses

*Road tires have a higher pressure than off-road bikes. Low pressure on the road causes glass and dirt to stick to your tires and will eventually cause a flat.
