One of the most common questions we hear from beginning cyclists is "How do I shift gears?" Well, in addition to the expert advice on this and other topics you can get in our stores, we've created a new section on our web site that addresses how to operate the shifting levers for all of the major manufacturer's models of shifters.
Just go to our Where to Ride page, check the list of shifting systems at the bottom of the page, and click on the one that matches your bike.
Also, check out the left-side menu on our Where to Ride page. It has suggestions for places to ride, whether you like riding on the road, singletrack mountain biking, or dedicated bike paths. It also has many other helpful pages, with information and tips about riding skills, training, commuting by bike, bike clubs and other local resources!
