Man, you might as well ask everyone's religious beliefs.
I used to always use 120psi or so, but a few years ago I started backing off from that. Today my wife and I (who combined weigh a lot more than 228 lbs) run 100 psi front and 110psi rear on our tandem (700 x 28c tires). My subjective feeling is that the bike as well as it ever did and rides a lot more comfortably but I don't know how to measure either.
I'm sure there are folks who have contrary opinions.
