I'm mostly using Hutchinson Secteurs as 60psi on the road. Man that's a nice ride and I'm no slower.

On the nice weather bike I have Veloflex Extremes that I pump to about 95-100psi. I don't break 100psi for any tire. I'm around 77kg or less.

72kg and GP4000s clinchers that say "pump us to 7-8.5 bar". So I pump ~8bar both (116psi). And so, in the last 3 years only one flat (but that was strange one). I remember the days when I pumped 5bar (72psi) and flatted 5 times per year. So I am not going back ;)

25mm Conti 4 seasons, 79kg. 80 front, 85 rear, but then I only pump up once a week, so they're down to 65-70 for most of that time. Haven't had a pinch flat for years.

I really don't understand why people buy 25mm's then pump them up rock hard negating all the benefit!

To avoid pinch flats and damage to the rim.
For me, I want as much air as possible between my rims and the sharp edge of a pothole. Comfort and performance take second place.
I used to pump 80/85 psi on 25 mm Grand Prix'es and they were getting pinched, damaging the rim twice.
Im 67 kg btw.

If I am using latex tubes on a very long ride I may start at 100 psi but by the end it will be less.

100 psi on 23 or 25c tires on 19 or 23 mm rims.

I've tried running lower pressures on 23 mm rims but I get bad punctures. I'm 6'3" and about 88 kgs...I've come to the conclusion that I can't run lower pressures.

I weigh 62kg however I run a very high pressure. Anything less than 120psi I have a flat tire! I know this is crazy but I need every bit of speed to keep up with the group rides that I do. Even if there's no speed benefit it does give me a psychological boost...
