A guy at my LBS told me that as you ride along the pressure in your tyre will increase by 10 to 15PSI from its ‘resting’ pressure. This is the reason he gave me for not inflating my tubeless Wheel TA 36" tyre above 38PSI (resting), when I know that a coker tyre (with a tube) can go up to 50PSI. Is this a cycling myth or can anyone with a pressure guage confirm this? Its like Mythbusters for unicyclists!
Here’s the challenge: go you measure the resting pressure of your tyre, preferably with a pressure guage that is accurate to 1 or 2 PSI. Then go and ride continuously for half an hour or an hour jump off and take the pressure again. Report your findings here so that we all may find out something cool about tyres!
