I know cyclists come in a variety of sizes and weights. So taking that into preface, tire pressure would vary depending on the weight of the rider. 100 pounds less pressure 200+ pounds more pressure. At least that makes sense to me.
So now let us take this wisdom or complete jacked up thought (you may choose) and apply it to tubulars.
I see guys talking about how much to use for this or that course. 18 to 32 psi. Seems to be the most common number range heard.
But for bigger cats, tyhe 200+ fellas, does 40 or 40+ psi make sense as the psi makes up for heavier riders? Does a tubular lose the wonderful benefits I keep hearing about as the psi climbs?
Do heavy guys need to look to tubeless systems for sturdier sidewalls and similiar pinch flat wonderment?
I am on the bigger fella side easily and have tried running lower pressures, but literally fell on my face a few times. Enough to question lower pressures (for skinny riders).
Any thoughts or experience would be mucho helpful!
