Beginner’s guide to mountain bike gears

Beginner’s guide to mountain bike gears With so many advances being made in the field of transmission, we take a closer look at the elements that make up your bike’s gears Seb Rogers It is amazing to think that just 30 years ago the mountain bike drivetrain didn’t even exist. It wasn’t until 1982 that Shimano launched the iconic six-speed XT component group, and even this high-end equipment didn’t feature the basic stuff that we take for granted today, such as indexed shifting and slide on cassette sprockets. Gears is an area that has seen rapid development over the years: the fundamentals may be very similar, but with manufacturers pushing their new technologies and releasing ...

How To Shift Your Bicycle’s Gears

Understanding Your Gears Multi-speed gears allow you to climb hills comfortably that might force you to stand up and “pump” or even get off and push if you were riding a one-speed. They also allow you to go faster downhill or with the wind at your back. Cadence Every cyclist has an ideal “cadence ” (pedaling speed), and an ideal amount of resistance from the pedals. When you are pedaling at your ideal cadence, you are putting out the greatest amount of power that you are able to sustain efficiently. You select your cadence by shifting gears. The gear needed to allow your “ideal” cadence will depend on the slope of the road, the wind conditions, and ...

Bicycle Gears

Bicycle Gears Bicycle gears can help make a bike considerably more efficient and are especially useful when you are dealing with hilly terrain. Gears basically control the relationship between the cadence, which is the rate a rider pedals, and the rate at which the wheel turns. Some bikes, often called fixed gear bikes or single speed bikes, operate with a fixed gear ratio, meaning that there is only one gear. This can be a problem when dealing with varying inclines, as it means you have to pedal more to compensate for the incline. There are two main types of gears: external and internal gears, and this refers to the fact of whether the gears are enclosed or clearly visible. Gearing Range ...
