Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

gear ratio

This is used to compare gearing. For example, on a road bike with 18 gears, there are 2 chainrings and 9 cogs. To check the gearing, count the teeth on the cogs and chainrings and create a chart with the rings on top and the cogs on the side. Then, to calculate each gear ratio, divide the chainring by the cog and multiply by 27 (rear wheel diameter). Put the numbers in the chart so you can compare and understand. The larger the number, the harder it is to pedal the gear. By comparing the numbers, it's possible to find overlapping gears and gaps that you might want to change to improve the gear ratios.

Pat's Daily Cycling Tip

Pedal Faster, Not Harder – One mistake many new cyclists make is trying to get fit by pushing a hard gear. While there’s a place for this type of (strength) training in cycling, most new cyclists are better off working on cardiovascular fitness, which burns calories, builds the heart and lungs and increases pedaling power. To do this, try shifting into an easier gear and rev your pedals (aim for 90 revolutions per minute, counted on one leg). Riding this way will get you in shape faster and prevent the possibility of knee injury, which comes from pushing a too-hard gear.
