Depends on your tyres really, what type are you using?

Thanks. I'm using Continental Triathlon. I've asked before but keep getting vastly different answers.

120 psi should be fine. I presume they're clinchers and not tubulars?
Should say max pressure on the tyre wall.
I like them and I've run them now for about a year on my training bike, even through winter, they grip really well. Only downside I have found is they wear quickly.

Are they clincher or tubular? i.e. if you have a separate inner tube then you using clinchers.

Tubular tires can usually be pumped over 120psi, not sure how high because I haven't used them.
Clincher 120psi is normally the max.
