I tried 3.3 bar, which is supposed to be close to the max for the tire. The idea was to give more control and better efficiency, but that experience wasn't good for me at all. The feeling I got was: The wheel became too squirrely, and I don't mean in a wobbling or turning kind of way, but a feeling it wanted to follow cracks in the road, lines between cobble-stones and so on. Turning the wheel, it took more force to lean in, and then more force to lean out of the turn. I wonder if there is something about the geometry in my tire that causes this? Bumps and curbs did become quite a lot more uncomfortable, even though I just about never ride with straight legs. So today I took it down again to 3.0 bar, where I was before, and that made all the difference. Once again I fell that it swallows bumps and cracks without noticing them. The tire is still pretty hard, but there is some give in it. For reference, this is what my tire looks like, I understand they ship with a different one lately. Mine has a pretty well defined totally flat center ridge, an slightly curved outer ridge, and a more heavily patterned middle ridge.
