What’s with all these gears?
Road bike gears can be confusing! Thankfully, but many beginners still find that gearing can be hard to grasp. We suggest avoiding a triple chainset (three rings on the front) and getting a 2x11 setup (two rings up front). From there, try to avoid the “big-big” and “small-small” combinations by changing on the front to avoid “cross-chaining” (running the chain at a diagonal pitch, which decreases efficiency and increases wear). In general, when you make a shift on the front to a harder gear, you should make two shifts on the back to an easier gear to compensate. The same works in reverse. With time, you'll get the hang of it
