Looking around I saw the majority of people riding around 30/31 on the M696. However I am about 115lbs, so any suggestions on what psi I should be riding at? Just checked it and it was low, 25/28...
Pretty much my point, at the posters 25 front 28 rear, you are below recommended racing pressure, a 1 or 2 pound decrease from recommended is probably the max reducation that s/b considered.To the contrary, tire pressure most certainly should be adjusted for the total weight of the vehicle, including passengers. More mass means more deformation of the tires, so the PSI should be increased to keep them where they should be.
Edit: The recommendation for the 1100 (which is likely similar to the 696 as they're about the same weight) is, IIRC, 34.8 PSI rear and 31.9 PSI front, with an increase to 34.8 PSI front if you expect to hit potholes and similar hazards (to protect the rim).
I ride 35 PSI front and rear and never have traction issues under normal conditions, including during the winter. In my opinion, a lower pressure is only good for racing, and for wearing out your tires more quickly. But every rider feels comfortable at a different level, so do what you feel is best. But at 115 lbs. keep in mind that the recommended pressures are likely slightly too high for you. Maybe decrease by 1 PSI from recommended.
