    How much lower tire pressure ?

    make sure you check the tires every month or so to make sure they're at normal operating pressure.

    I got this from
    I thought you had to lower the tire pressure during winter storage!
    Why should it be lower and how much lower does it have to be; 10 lb less or even more?
    I should not forget to mention that my bike sits on a front and a rear stand.

    I see no reason to lower your tire pressures. They should do that by themselves over time..
    it goes without saying that you should make sure to check your pressures before riding when you pull it out of storage..

    Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    If you have your bike on stands over the winter it's not a prob. If your bike is on the ground you should pump your tires up (and even move the bike every now and then) to prevent flatspots from forming on the tires.
