I climbed a 94.29% with my industrial diamond studded 6.8 tires, i cooked a hamburger on my thighs when i got up to the top of the hill.

I then breathed fire and established a small country in honor of chuck norris who beat me by pedaling with his beard.

I'm wondering if the OP knows that a 100% grade = 45 degree slope.

...wtf is grade in degrees?

Seriously, grade is great for the road but doesn't imply the impact of off road nearly as well.
