Could you tell us what rim and tire that is that can't go over 60psi? I'm pumping the Conti's on my 27" and 700C rims to around 110 psi in back and 100 in front. It would take about 120 - 125 to lift the IRC Triathlon tires off a concave rim. I have a pair of Michelins which measure around 30mm wide and only pump them to 90 and 100 psi on the wider concave rims. (Model A129 vs A124 for the narrow?)
