Great, informative video guys. Good job.
I’ld like to think of it as big and small… the big lever moves to the bigger cogs and the small lever moves to the smaller cogs.
That’s what i looked for! Thank you!
Much needed explanation!
Don’t pedal backwards when shifting….
Thank you!! I couldn’t understand why my chain would make a noise sometimes but now i get it, never cross chain 😂
A very good guide.
Thank you so much this is really helpful!
I’m such an idiot. No matter how many times I watch this video I just don’t understand. Too many things to remember. I’m getting discouraged. Why tf can’t I grasp this concept.
Best video on gear shifting for total beginners!
For anyone reading this that knows…Two Questions – 1. Should you ease off the pedals or stop pedaling for shifting on an eTap drivetrain? 2. Does Biggest front ring and smallest rear ring have some rubbing on the metal piece? i feel like i hear some rubbing. is that normal?
Idk what’s more concerning, the video idea or people still having questions
Well explained. Thank you !
I just bought my bike and I didn’t know how to go back to the gears. This video was absolutely useful, thank you.
Thank you! This was helpful.
The best explanation out there, thank you
I know how to shift but i don’t have a bike
Short and sweet (easy to understand). Thank you!
Could you tell me where to purchase the bike and gear furniture in the back ground. Very nice, I think my wife would not mind my bike and gear storage indoors if it was in a nice unit like the one shown here. Would appreciate letting me know where to find, thanks.
Very helpful! Thank you !!
This video wasn’t helpful. I’m still confused as F***. Maybe a chart with different scenarios when using the shifters would help. There are different types of learners and I guess this video didn’t help me much.
I found this other video that actually explained it better.

Lol… Guess I should’ve asked some questions before leaving the bike shop with my first road bike today!!! 😂
Luckily I just rode around the block! I upgraded from an FX… I got down the road and realized I didn’t know how the hell to get through my gears!!!!!!
Very helpful video!

NOW IT’S TIME FOR A GIVEAWAY 😃
I try to remember this way:
1. For shifting. Big levers shift to big cogs and small lever shifts to small cogs.
2. Front cogs: Big/hard/fast and small/easy/slow
3. Rear cogs: Big/easy/slow and small/hard/faster
