Been horsing around with tire pressures since I bought the bike. I'm 145 lbs, ride on fairly smooth roads and find that rear 30-32 with 24-25 front seems to be optimum for me. 20 on the front has just never felt right.

Changed from the Pirelli Demons to Avon  AM26 - posted about them in another thread

I never felt that the Demons were suited to the Continental.

For riding around town on the AM26 it  feel like a different bike, much better - none of that horrible tramlining - yippeeeee!

Early days, but they seem to offer more feedback on the twisty backroads than the Demons for me

Well after a little bit of trail and error ended up at 28 Front and 30 Rear and the bike feels stable and confident to turn. 20 is definitely off IMHO and borderline dangerous. Thanks for all the feedback, much appreciated.
