When I commute to work, the last 2 miles are on hardpack gravel paths. It is okay on the 23mm tires, but if it were any looser, or less hardpack I think it would probably suck. Also I have never done it in the rain, so I don't know how that would affect the gravel. The only other thing I have noticed is that I get the ocassional scratch right near the bead edge on the rims from shooting rocks out from under the tire. It's not an everytime thing, but it does happen, and it doesn't seem to affect the rim at all.

Also the "25% Potholes" made me laugh, I could say the same thing about Baltimore in general
