Silly tire pressure question

Big trip looming, so double checked tire pressure reccomendations.
Mets 42/48
OK
But I have a Bridgestone 020 on the frount and a Metz on the rear.
Any ideas what will run best 2 up full camping gear and solo?

Re: Silly tire pressure question

Cookie.. hey pard.. some folks "bump" the rear up 2 more PSI... I wouldn't.

However, your "total" weight may vary, so, if you have the capability to add air, try riding until "warm", then bump the pressure up 2... and test how the bike responds.. if you can't tell a difference in handling, run it at 48....
