I rode the Divide Ride on a rigid bike using 700x47mm Schwalbe tires. Had to adjust air pressure for worst sand and washboard sections. Weight of equipment was 18 pounds. Most weight up front in two medium volume panniers with a dry bag stuffer on top of rear rack.
Lighter overall weight and less weight at rear I believe protected my wheels from damage.
