Now I know this will come off as a newbie question that I am not. Reason I am asking got a new tire for the bike recommended pressure for it is 70-90psi now I had just about 75 psi in it was sitting doing an adjustment on the bike I had no weight on the seat and tube blew. I had just installed it went for a ride up the road was ok come back now that happened. Any ideas to why? Yes I had checked the tibe to make sure it wasn't pinched when I put it back together that was all good. So what pressure rating do I go by on it?
Cheers and thanks
Jim

I go to the high end for road, so 90 psi.

It may have just been a bad tube.

Assuming that you're not doing any off-roading, I'd go for 85 - 90 psi. I've had a couple tubes do that in the past with no reasonable explanation other than just a bad tube.
