Any advice? I'm running Bridgestone's Battlewing ADV tire...

I've heard 36/42, 33/36, .... I'll have my gf on the back, (She;s about 110 lbs) and 3 panniers with our stuff. So, the preload will be all the way up, just not sure about the pressure.

Thanks guys.

36/42 is what the spec says and that works fine. Not sure where the lower pressure came from, but that would just make the tires run hotter. Not what you want with tubes in there.

....seems like a waste of a 'what weight oil should I use'.
