I also run Tioga PowerBlocks (non foldable version), I run 80psi. I'm heavy and I do most of my riding at home where the corners are tight so it's hard to turn unless I have lots of pressure. Even 80psi can sometimes be quite jarring, it's a fine line though. It took me a while to find the right pressure for me.

I run powerblocks and always just go by what is recommended.  Depends on track surface as well though. Love just pumping up as hard as it says for tracks with bitumen corners.  They just hook in...

Racing / Tyre pressures

Just a question which is probably on everyone's mind when pumping up tyres. With all the new Kevlar tyres on the market what pressure do you run. I don't know what everyone thinks but I believe 110psi is way to hard on vee rubber tyres. Kevlar powerblocks are out to 120 psi which is ridiculous. I tend to think 80-90 psi is a good pressure for dry. My son says at full pressure it seem to just bounce all over the track. What are your thoughts.

I was talking with my son the other day, and the subject turned to PRO'S. He asked the question "Why are PRO'S so greedy nowadays?" The answer is, of course, that PRO'S in general are no more greedy, violent, generous, or kind now than they were 10, 15, 20, or 40 years ago. They make decisions and respond to incentives the same way they always have. The technologies and the institutions with which they can do their good or bad, however, certainly have changed over time. The ups and downs of BMX had much more to do with the laws and political institutions (BMXA) which affected the incentives for the PRO'S to be productive and responsible than with changes in the nature of the PRO'S themselves.

A very good question. I have no answer, maybe some of the 'pros' can answer that.
