Good Luck! Don't be gentle, either. Hammer it! Better to know now whether it will hold, than later when you're way out on a trail somewhere!

If it's going to break, it will probably happen on dry pavement. Corners on pavement, especially with low air pressure, or extra weight, put the most stress on a locked axle.

If you never run pavement, I wouldn't try it to test it out, might never break off road.
