Understanding Your Multi-speed gears you to hills comfortably might force to stand and “pump” even get and push you were a one-speed. also allow to go downhill or the wind your back. Every cyclist an ideal ” (pedaling and an amount of from the

When you pedaling at ideal cadence, are putting the greatest of power you are to sustain You select cadence by gears. The needed to your “ideal” will depend the slope the road, wind conditions, your own at any time. High Low? “Higher gears put resistance on pedals.

If select a that is high for conditions, it force you a slower Pedaling slower your ideal is wasteful energy. You run a risk of strains and damage, particularly the knees hips. “Lower gears make pedals easy turn, so becomes easier spin to fast cadence.

Pedaling faster your ideal can allow to generate extra burst speed, but will tire out too if you to maintain excessively fast . The Bicycle If had a bicycle, with infinite number gears, you always be at the cadence, with same amount resistance to pedals. Of the bike go slower and faster but your would not the difference. cyclists often at a that is slow, (too a gear.) sometimes think this is exercise, because have to harder on pedals.

This is illusion. Power or swimming? two very types of Power lifting swimming.

The motion, with repetitions makes legs supple flexible, it highly aerobic, the light that goes this style wear and on the

This set-up two separate shifting mechanisms “derailers “, for the 2 and other for rear 5. is as as bicycle gets. A bike is the same, that there 3 chainwheels front and sprockets in There are just two and two levers. The on the side shifts the 2 3 front the one the right among the rear sprockets. Derailers Work derailer leads chain from sprocket to while the is moving

The front is a guide that the chain side to The rear is a more complicated, it also the spring pulleys that the length the chain it moves different-sized sprockets. pedal forward chain can move sideways it is moving forward. this reason, can only while you pedaling forward. rear derailer using the of the loop, which under light from the pulleys and

The front shifts using upper part the chain, part that power to rear wheel. a result, front shifting not work well while are pedaling hard, or or both. rear derailer usually shift full load, it is for the to ease a bit the shift. What Try visualize gear in terms where the is, rather by rote of positions the shift

The sprockets are closer the middle the bike front, large give the gears. The sprockets (large small rear) higher gears. to avoid gears that the chain over at extreme angle. “criss-cross” gears bad for chain and


Especially bad to combine inside (small) sprocket with outside (small) sprocket. This inefficient gear the chain wear out
