But it is...

Hi All...

I have, in the last few years, grown to a "very stout" 260 lbs. Hopefully cycling will relieve this in a reasonable time frame. But I digress...

I'm riding Continental Giros tubular tires at around 95-100 psi. As I ride them, they don't >seem< soft to me.

Confounded and looking for another data point, I sat on the bike and had my wife check the tire pressure and it really didn't seem go up... This info did not help!

As far as I know I do not live outside the jurisdictional boundary for the laws of gravity or thermodynamics...

Any one have a idea where I'm going wrong?

All I wanted to do was determine if I'll be able to ride on a pair of Veloflex Criteriums... Without blowing them to smythereens...
