Depends of course on your personal preference and your weight.

Around 100PSI is a good average value I think. A lot of people I know prefer high  pressure
( high = 120PSI+ )

currently pump it a 100 psi.
my weight is 70 Kg.

my old setup (10 years ago) on my morales bike i run two tires with a tube in a rim so to withstand a higher PSI 140 or more. SOLID like a rock

my weight  = 78kg, and i run 120psi in 100 psi rated tyres (odyssey frequency G's-) its mainly about minimising rolling resistance.
by the way those frequency gees don't seem to have a problem with the higher psi's, although you might need to re-adjust your brakes if you're using the standard 32h wheels...
