Wouldn't that be nice!!!!

kg / cm doesn't tell me anything.

Short of buying a pressure controller from a US bike there appears to be no way to change that.

I made a sticker that I attached inside the top box.

10 psi = .69 40 psi = 2.75
20 psi = 1.38 50 psi = 3.45
30 psi = 2.07 58 psi = 4.00
Range 0 - 58 psi/0-4 kg/cm
