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,
~DC~

'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. :(

Holly Crap ! That is great !

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.
