I want one, too. My driveway's, like, 100 ft long and rises up like 10 ft. That's, like, a 25% grade.

I want one too, know just where to put it as well. There's this pathway out of downtown, it rises 30 odd meters in just under 400, climbing that with 30 lbs of stuff in the panniers at the end of the day sucks!

Errr...if the 100 feet is the horizontal distance and not the slope distance, then the grade is 10%.
