I was trying out my wifes new bike the other day. Theres a huge hill down the road thats gravel and very steep. From a 4mph rolling start at the top I can get up to 35mph without peddeling in about 3 seconds. I got to the bottom where it tuns an easy right and I hit some loose gravel on the side and the back tire slide sideways while the front leans hard. I managed to controll the fishtailing and got it straight by feathering both brakes. Talk about scary.
damn... 4-35mph in 3sec? was the hill like 89degrees? lol

Its a hill in a subdivision on a new part they are grading. Just looking at it, its way beyond the limits of what the county allows for a grade which is 16%. Ild guess its 35% honestly. Comming back up I have to lean forward alot to keep the front tire on the ground, its slow but fun. It burns the legs up pretty good.
