Topic: pump air at petrol station

I believe should be 150 PSI when air compressor was new. But that SHELL petrol koisk only around last couple of years. So those with tubular may still need to buy your own pump.

Hi Everyone,
The last time I used a 700 X 20C clincher, it seems to be rather fragile.
Any better recommendation for 700C for competition use?
Many thanks

A question for experts who use petrol station pumps... The last time (and only time) i had to inflate my tires at petrol station, i had to set the digital psi to like 300 to get around 60 on my tires... quite scary (and waste of time trial-and-error). Is this normal??

We need to select Kpa or PSI at petrol koisks, before we inflate tyre/tire. The facility can not pre-select for us. Do not wait for the government to select for us.

The default setting for all the digital pumps I've encountered so far in SG is in kPa. You'll need to press the 'conversion' button to get the psi reading.

And I don't think any gas station pumps can give you 300 psi.

BANG! Anyone exploded a bike's inner tube using petrol station air pump?
I heard motorists say the rate of air delivery is very fast.
