How to Select the Right Gear

Depending on what brand and model of shifters are on your bike, there are various techniques for how you actually shift gears. However, how do you decide when to shift, and choose the correct gear for different situations? This short video explains the principles of how to select the right gear combination.

The video assumes that you have a total of 27 gears on your bike (3 gears up front, 9 on the back wheel), but the principles are the same if you have a different number of gears, e.g. 2 up front and 7, 8, or 10 on the back).
