kona paddy wagon
edited March 2017
i was wondering if anyone has used there paddy wagon with cross tyres on light gravel trails or would you say the bike wouldnt withstand it
The bike will be fine. Any frame can handle a bit of gravel road.
-wheel building and other stuff.
It'll be fine - once the wheels have settled down (never ridden a bike where the spokes pinged so much in the first few 10's of km) - I have given mine quite some abuse including a daily ride down half a dozen shallow steps into Vondel Park.
The only thing to be careful of with those tyres is keeping an eye on the brake blocks. I damaged the sidewall of a tyre because I wasn't paying attention to the pad wear and the arc of the caliper meant the pad started rubbing on the 27c tyre.
