|I prefer to ride 'em at 110-120 psi. I weigh around 145-150 lbs, and like the ride at that pressure.|

|At 195lbs , you're close to my weight. I usually run 120 in front and 130 in back. I believe that the max is 170. Anything over 140 and the ride becomes too harsh.|
|Second those pressures (I'm 195lbs too)||JimP|

|I concur with MrGrumpy about the pressures. You might run a little less if you want more comfort. Also, you might run 5 or so psi more in the front if you use aero-bars and put more weight on the front. Don't worry about snake-bite punctures unless you run under 100 psi and have rough roads.
|Whatever works for you!!||Alexx|

|Of course, if you pump them up to the full 175 psig, not only will your @$$ hurt a lot, but you'll wear the center of the tread down in no time! Keep them low. You don't have to worry about pinch-flatting tubulars.|
|Anywhere between 100 and 150psi||TrekFurthur|

|The max is 170.
I weigh in at 165 during the season and up to 180 during the winter. Damn those Krispy Kremes.
