I'm glad I got the inclinometer, but it has it limits. The bubble in the spirit level can't tell the difference between acceleration and gravity - and your speed tends to be variable on hills - so the supposed gradient tends to bounce around a bit. Also, if you are paranoid about overtightening the mount, as the instructions advise, the inclinometer might slip and not stay horizontal. Carry another little spirit level, for example the Stanley Line Level, to check this. Mind you, the competition, GPS, has its limits too, thanks to the jitter between GPS readings. GPS is ok for the average gradient up a long pass, but not for the slope at any one place. As a result, you really have to come to a stop to get a good reading. Also the mount will not fit round a very fat handlebar *store note: we now carry a 31.8 version for oversize handlebars*

We got the first of these Inclinometers about 15 years ago from a friend of a friend in Germany. We assumed that it was accurate and it always gave the same reading within one percent. The only reason we bought a new one was for a second bike but the  percent markings do fade and become hard to read after a few years, also two of  the mounting screw holes stripped out . I replaced the screws with brass threads and knurled nuts.

I have enjoyed using my inclinometer, although in a recent trip through the Sierra Nevada's in California, towards the end of an 8 hour day, which was spent climbing 8-10 degree grades all day, I thought if I had another reading of 10 degrees I would go crazy. The inclinometer worked well, was easy to install and easy to read. I think it is expensive considering that it is basically a line level. This is a splurge type purchase.

Excellent Inclinometer Rating:

How nice to have something so accurate without wires, batteries, or a computer to depend on. This little gadget simply works. I've always wondered about the %grade of some of the hills I climb, and now I know. I wish everything else was this simple. Excellent product, durable, and reasonably priced.
