    Best explanation yet! Good job…Now I get it. Thank you๐Ÿ’™



  2. Susan Eshleman on July 10, 2019 at 9:23 pm

    No one explained this anywhere! Had to access numerous websites and videos to come to this one. It is the information I’m looking for. People say you never forget how to ride a bike. Well I did forget.

  7. The Alchemist on July 10, 2019 at 9:30 pm

    Perfect video thanks! Helped me out a lot!



  8. Barry Willis on July 10, 2019 at 9:30 pm

    Thank God, I’ve been trying to figure my gears out for a few days now. You’ve made it so much easier. Thanks a lot!!!!!!



  9. problem solvers on July 10, 2019 at 9:33 pm

    Thanks I didn’t understand how to use gare with friction with this video I understood



  10. itsbronola on July 10, 2019 at 9:34 pm

    OMG after so many vids you’re the most on point one. Thank you! I just a bought a bike here in Korea since I can’t take my car.



  11. just a random educated human on July 10, 2019 at 9:36 pm

    Thanks! I had no idea which range and gear I should be in.



  12. RS1 on July 10, 2019 at 9:36 pm

    Nice. I always wondered what the gears we’re for.



  13. Doug H. in VA on July 10, 2019 at 9:38 pm

    useless…. they didn’t even check the audio level. nothing to hear



  14. Deuxcheveux on July 10, 2019 at 9:38 pm

    Excellent! Now I have a clear understanding. Thank you for making the lesson understandable.



  15. Lena Johansen on July 10, 2019 at 9:41 pm

    Thank you. This is the first video I have seen that actually made me understand the shifting. Other videos talk about 21 gears, insted og 7 like you did. So thank you, now I am going to try my bike again ๐Ÿ™‚



  16. bananna on July 10, 2019 at 9:41 pm

    Thank you for teaching me.



  17. Sivaram SK on July 10, 2019 at 9:42 pm

    Thank you so much for explaining it. Now itโ€™s so simple to handle it.



  18. J on July 10, 2019 at 9:43 pm

    dislike for audio quality



  19. ImpactedBinkie 5 on July 10, 2019 at 9:43 pm

    I was using any gear in low speed and my chain snapped so I decided to see what I did wrong and I figured I didnโ€™t actually know how to change speeds and gears this has helped me learn it and hopefully it wonโ€™t happen again thanks a lot!



  20. Allacra on July 10, 2019 at 9:46 pm

    So the finger shift = up shift
    The thumb shift = down shift?

  21. Billy Davis on July 10, 2019 at 9:46 pm

    Wow what a great video this is the best one I’ve seen yet!!



  22. JohnRhey CasPel on July 10, 2019 at 9:46 pm

    Thanks i just got my new mountain bike. This is very useful for me, i learned a lot in 7 minutes. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘



  23. uit kijkpost on July 10, 2019 at 9:47 pm

    NICE video! Thanx. In addition one should NEVER use force on the pedals while shifting the front gears; on the back gears some force is no problem



  24. kiyonexus on July 10, 2019 at 9:49 pm

    Jesus get a microphone

    Edit: Jesus 3:04 I guess you finally listened half way into the video…



  25. Daniel on July 10, 2019 at 9:49 pm

  26. Parikshit Creater on July 10, 2019 at 9:50 pm

    Nice



  27. IMRANO on July 10, 2019 at 9:51 pm

    Can you explain what different with 21,24 and 27 speed?



  28. Sujith Kolap on July 10, 2019 at 9:52 pm

    I reached this video after watching and failing to understand 15 videos on changing the gears,..but after this video, now I am damn confident and I 100% know the function of all my gears and derailers…Thank you so much Madison cycle for saving my energy & time… I owe you a treat ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ



  29. Midhun #007 on July 10, 2019 at 9:57 pm

    Now I get it!! Thnx man๐Ÿ˜โคโคโค



  30. monster vedansh on July 10, 2019 at 9:57 pm

    Speak loudly idiot



  31. S. Lynne Price on July 10, 2019 at 9:58 pm

    Thank you. Very helpful.



  32. Nick Wiehe on July 10, 2019 at 9:59 pm

    Just bought a new mountain bike after almost 3 years of having one. Thank you so much for this video. It has helped tremendously!



  33. B Lee on July 10, 2019 at 10:01 pm

    Finally, a great explanation of what levels I should be using with each major gear. Thanks for showing what to do with our hands rather than just showing the actual gears.



  34. Harsha Naidu on July 10, 2019 at 10:01 pm

    Man, this guy makes it so easy. I’ve been through many videos, some of professional cyclists and still couldn’t figure out how to ride a 21 speed bike. Thank you Madison bikes for the great video ! ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„



  35. Daphne Nugent on July 10, 2019 at 10:01 pm

    Thank you! This was definitely the most helpful video for a beginner that I have found. I wish I could give you two thumbs up.



  36. Jason Jamal Nakleh on July 10, 2019 at 10:01 pm

    Thank you, this was helpful.

    Range 1 uses gears 1 and 2. Range 2 can use any gear. Range 3 uses gears 3-7.

    Easy to remember, thanks for making it clear!



  37. Christi on July 10, 2019 at 10:03 pm

    Thank you!! We just bought a hybid bike for my teenage son and the sales person didn’t explain anything. With your video we had complete understanding in minutes and he is out enjoying his new Diadora bike! Amazing video!



  38. P Killa on July 10, 2019 at 10:05 pm

    Thank you!



  39. kiyonexus on July 10, 2019 at 10:05 pm

    I know cross chaining is bad, like being in front gear 1 and gear 7 on the back, but my chains would not even allow that, would immediately jam… Does that mean I need to index/align the front derailleur properly or should I just leave it the way it is since every other gear is working properly



  40. yioukar on July 10, 2019 at 10:06 pm

    Thank you very much. You helped me a lot



  41. toni kellam on July 10, 2019 at 10:06 pm

    Best video. Really explains how the use the gears. Thanks for this one



  42. Rachel Jones on July 10, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    thats more like it! until now I didnt know about the rangers! I have more speed on mine to give my bike more speed!



  43. Felicia Szczepanski on July 10, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    THANK YOU!



  44. Yazeed Hawash on July 10, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    This video is amazing, I understand shifting better now. Thanks!



  45. Eliyahu2123 on July 10, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    Thank you! I’ve been googling and reading articles for 30 minutes trying to figure out what gears I actually use. This was insanely helpful, and makes me feel very comfortable riding the 21-speed I was gifted. Keep it on!



  46. DanielJr on July 10, 2019 at 10:09 pm

    Very informative, thank you. The mic was difficult to hear in the beginning though.



  47. ItzChris on July 10, 2019 at 10:10 pm

    Great video, Just bought my first mountain bike and I had no idea how to use the 1-3 gears. Cheers



  48. Joseph Holliday on July 10, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    I’m not sure I agree that the highest resistance automatically makes for more calories burnt. Higher resistance is more of a workout on the legs, but more impact on muscle than cardio. I’ve noticed from my experience that cadence has more influence on my heartrate than force, and increased heartrate makes for higher calorie burning cardio.



  49. Martin Gonzalez on July 10, 2019 at 10:12 pm

    Awesome video!! Very educational! Thank you!!!



  50. bbb103 on July 10, 2019 at 10:12 pm

    Simple, to the point, and absolutely brilliant. Thank You.
