That looks tame to our pea gravel here. He looks very relaxed.
Take me for example on my Ice Adventure FS HD I had. Was on a section of the munda biddi near Jarrahdale and boy I was cursing. 10% grade hill with loose pea gravel the whole way up, I knew I was in for a hard slog when I saw the hard tail MTB infront of me weaving all over the place.
3kph and for every pedal stroke I got power, I had the rear wheel slip. If I didn't have a knobby on the back I don't think I would have gotten up without pushing it.

I am with Stu on this ... these are probably good for rail trails but really not much else. Couldn't see one on single-track for example.
