120 PSI too lol. I wanted something with little rolling resistance. Bought some tyres before and they just bite the ground and slow you down something rotten.

Hahah, I thought running my conti contact speed 42x622 at 90psi was excessive. Must be pretty frighteningly fast if you give er'

But yeah, people running MTB tires under their commuters is a pretty interesting trend. You'd think the BRRRRRT sound gave away the poor rolling resistance.

These are BMX tyres dude. 20". That is why the PSI is nuts.

I've got my 700c, but I just like kicking around on a BMX.

I know man, 100psi is nuts on any tire except 23mm roadies, but especially at 20".

I doubt my pump will even do it tbh. You would be amazed how hot it becomes once you hit 100 PSI. The forces are just nuts. I usually ride around 80-90.

Try pumping a rear shock to 300psi. Then you feel the burn, muscle and skin temp..

Working on something with my 1000d build. The joys of having a 3D printer
