far less than that, bike included.
it actually sounds like a plausible idea. Radial tyres for motor vehicles have steel belts in them to improve the side wall stability, so perhaps the increased pressure gives the radial bike tyres that extra "hardening" without using steel belts in them?
Radial construction isn't conventional bike tyre construction...
Who knows, I'll give it a shot and see how it goes. If it works, great... if not then I get rid of these tyres and move on.
Besides, I know some other folk running their tyres at 130psi+, and one guy who runs his tyres at 140psi.
might be too high for his rims, but he has no issues in being well at the pointy end come the finish line each month.
