    Anyone know the correct inflation for the above tyres?

    I have recently inhertied a 1973 model A100, but sadly no documents or
    manuals to go off.
    Want to get riding in the meantime till I can track down a good book
    (suggestions anyone?) oe owners guide etc.

  3. ISTR 24/28 but that was 36-1/2 years ago, with contemporary tyres
    (and tubes!).

  4. A rule of thumb I've read, take it or leave it, is that the correct pressure
    whatever pressure will cause a 10% rise from stone cold to operating
    temperature (ie: after 15 minutes or more of riding) Too much pressure and
    the PSI
    rise will be under 10%, the tire isn't warming up enough. Too little
    and the PSI rise will be above 10%, indicating the tire is flexing too much
    and getting too hot.
