    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.
