Question Qs: How to determine correct PSI on wheels?

Hello po mga sir!

Paano ko po ba malalaman kung tama yung PSI na kinakarga ko sa gulong ng bike ko? Sa labas po kasi nung gulong eh may nakalagay na inflate to 45-60 psi. Sa mga gasoline station po kasi ako nagpapahangin, dun sa mga automatic na tire inflator at 20 psi lang ang nilalagay ko, kasi parang sobra na kapag mas mataas dun yung nilagay ko, baka sumabog pa yung gulong.

Thanks in advance po!

Buy and use your own tire pressure guage or buy a good tire pump that has a pressure guage built in. I check my tire pressure twice a month and inflate accordingly at home.. and before every epic ride.

50 psi yung sa nakasanayan ko sa gulong ko. so far okay naman.why dont try to buy mini pump na may built in gauge? para at least you can always check your psi every before ride and pwede ka na din mag experiment kung anong psi babagay sa ride mo

sir ala din nman masama s gasoline station k magpahangin ng gulong,, tama din nman yung gauge nila,, ako dun ako nagkakarga ng tire pressure up 50 psi p nga minsan lalo n pag long ride,, yung nakalagay s gulong natin n inflate 40 to 65 psi eh, design strength limit yun sir. kung maglagay k ng 20psi ok lng din nman, ska d k nman flat para maglagay ng 20 psi db,, much better bili k sir ng air gauge para maiset mo ng tama yung ai pressure ng gulong mo,,

in addition lng ko lng sir,
ako kc pag long ride eh 45 to 50 psi both tire. kc makunat ipadyak ang kenda nevegal n 26*2.10.
tpos pagtrails naman 40 psi para magamit ko yung mga side knobbies para s cornering nman s trails.
