COLD tire pressures

you guys really need to check your tire pressure before leaving in the morning if you ride to work like me, I checked fr/rr this morning, 15 front, 28 rear... That can cause some serious troubles.. Just be carefull in the cold weather guys.

I thought the more tire on the ground the better the grip.

Typically you are looking for 36 front and 34 rear street pressures, that's on cold (unridden) tires. I recommend checking them weekly, especially this time of year when the ambient temperature varies so much. Make sure you have a good gauge that is accurate.
