    WHAT IS THE STEEPEST GRADE YOU CAN CLIMB ?
    With or without peddle assist...

    Please share you experiences with uphill grades and steep grades.

    Optional sharing: Farthest distance traveled on a trip ?
    Regular or irregular mechanical maintence along the way...

    Thanks,

    'Round here the steepest grade is not very steep and can be climbed with under full throttle no problem....I want to find a cheap small sprocket since the 44T is too many for my application.

    50 miles round trip, no maintenance was needed. In fact 250++ miles and I finally had to tighten one of the four mount nuts and grease my gears.

    I'll be doing another 50++ today to ride out to the airfield to work on another crashed plane. :sad:

    Although at first I was skeptical, I gain confidence in these little buggers daily.....

    I had a 60 tooth sprocket on one of my bikes, actually a bicycle chain ring. It climbed very well but ended up breaking some spokes because of the torque.
