Question about Cycling
The above advice is not exactly good cycling practice. The right shifter operates the cluster of gears on the REAR wheel. The main aim is keep your legs turning at a constant speed (around 70-90 turns per min). Do this by changing the right shifter. For most people cycling UNDER 30km/hr, the SMALL chainring (or middle one if three) is the gear to use. The left shifter will shift these.. When your pedal action is more than 90 rpm, shift to a larger cahinring (left shifter). Now there are some GEAR combinations to AVOID, mostly theLARGE front chainring and LARGE sproket on the back. This combination wears the chain rapidly, but more important, is the leading cause of the cahin coming off. !

Well, the basic principle is this: If you want a big change use your left shifter and if you want a small change use the right shifter. The right shifter is more for nuances and the left one will make a big difference in your riding speed and difficulty.
