    This is not an ebike, right? However, I like that it has the protected internal gears.
    Can it be made into an ebike?

    First video I found that explained really simply! Thanks so much.

    Great video explaining how gears work on your bikes. I was browsing through your website and could not find the 7 speed internal model, I could only find the external. I was interested more in the 3 gear system since it was internal but knowing theres a 7 gear internal really caught my eye. Have the internal 7 gears not been released yet ?
    Nvm I found them

    thank you for the video, just got back into riding a bike after a long time not being on one. This really helped me understand each gear and really was a life saver! no more biking in 6 gear going up hill :’)

    I have just bought an e-bike and I haven’t ridden a bike for around forty years and not one with gears before. Trying to fathom out what gears to use and how to use them this is super helpful. Bless you and thank you. 💗🙅🌹😚
