A question for my cycling friends about tire pressure. I have had two tires this summer where the bead of the tire tire has come unseated, and the tube has come out causing it to pinch and leak. They have both been on the rear tire. They were both Continental brand tires. The latest one, I bought a replacement tire that is a Continental Grand Sport Race tire. It says that its max PSI is 120. Before each ride, I air my tires up to their max tire pressure. Today, on this tire’s second ride, the tire came unseated, the tube pinched and leaked within my first mile. What I want to know is since I’m a big rider (250+ lbs) do I need to step down from the max PSI as I am assuming that my body weight on a the bike increases the pressure that is in the tire from the unweighted air pressure I measure during airing it up. Thanks

After two days off from riding, my legs were feeling pretty good today so I decided to go up Little Cottonwood Canyon again. It has been a goal of mine for a while to be able to make it all the way up without stopping to catch my breath. Today, I was able to make it the whole way up without stopping. Average speed from home to top was 5.2 MPH. Average speed going from top to home 32.4 MPH

Made it to the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon today on my first ride up. Checked off a goal for 2015.

Direct from Spain, just got my bike back today. Orbea gave me a new frame because of the crack. Watch out winter weight gain, your days are numbered.

Found this crack on by bike frame today. Orbea Orca carbon fiber. The factory took it back under warranty. Now to wait for the replacement.
