Performance of Brompton (tires) on unpaved bike trails?
I'm off to Charlottetown, PEI, at the end of this week for a national science fair that I'm helping out with. I'm schelping the Brompton along to get in some riding, both practically (to and from the hotel, which is sort of in the middle of nowhere) and for some recreation, time permitting. The Confederation Trail is close by, made for multimodal use, and is mostly unpaved, crushed stone surface. Some great cycling tours apparently.
Who has taken their Brompton onto similar trails? Performed okay? I have the standard Brompton Kevlar tires.
