    get smoother then. i run about 16 PSI and i've pinchflatted once in the past 6 or so months. how heavy are you? what conditions do you ride in? natural or urban? answer those then somebody can maybe help you out.

    start with 20, and let abit out every so often till you are rimming hard, then put a bit more in.

    Andreas says the right thing.
    You seem to be looking for the pressure you will not be punching it, but that is not right.
    There can be two reasons:
    1. You use Monty Salmon sidewall tyres, which are the easiest to punch flat. - get Monty X-Lite black one with a white line sidewall or any other hard tyre.
    2. You land heavily and your rim hits the inner tube badly. - try to flex your legs when landing.
    Running at high pressures will affect your riding style in a bad way.

    I used to have Monty Salmon sidewall tyres, i still didn't get pinch flats....ever. don't get monty tyres, they suck. try alls are good, you'll be blingin for about 3 months....then they wear up. after that pick up a set of maxxis creepy crawlers, then you'll be the master.
    be smoother, best 'anti pinchflat' tip ever

    I am going to put Try Alls soon, but have used monties for ages and they are pretty well (they dont wear quickly)...
    I did punch Salmon Sidewalls like once or twice a week....coz i weight 82 kilos...
    And i almost never punch the black monty tyres.
    So i dont understand why they suck..any explanation?

    well for one thing pinching once or twice a week.... :greddy2: not sure wut the fuck is up with that....
    oh yea, you probably can't tell if you are riding the monty tyres, but in reality....tyres are supposed to grip! it's hard to understand that when riding as shitty a tyre as a monty, but it's true. that's what tyres are for:gripping to stuff.
    get a try all tyre, THEN come back to me saying that your monty's are good. :rofl:

    -Here i was talking of the Salmon Sidewalls....

    BUT...you are really self confident about those Try Alls....and that means that they are well good.
    I have ordered a new Zoo Python 1045....it comes in June....i'll put TryAlls on it ASAP and then will check the difference...
    Now i understand why the are called sticky...
    Thank you Andreas, you have made up my mind!

    PS: What do you think of those Echo tyres? Arent they too thin? I dont like thier looks actually...
    Do they punch flat?
    Thankz
