Remember to never, ever use the pump at the gas station! Buy a pump.

60 to 80 psi. If you have a long hose you can go 85-90 due to pressure drop.

My bike arrived today and its AWESOME! lol Its a Trek Shift 2 (I ordered and paid for the shift 1 but the clerk made an error ordering it so they upgraded me to the shift 2 for free! They've got my business for life haha)

But how do I know how much air I can pump into the tires? There are no numbers on the tires and the only information on the site about the tiers is "Bontrager H5, 26x2.0" which does not mean anything...to me at least. I want to keep them pumped at their maximum because of my weight.

Any tips?
