Yes of course but the gear must also be good in quality otherwise it may affect your cycling experience. I would suggest you to buy best quality cycling gear from Griffen online bike store that offers helmets, cycling gear, bike components and much more. You may also find more details on:- Griffen

The MORE the gears a bicycle has, the more the problems you will have. This is why mtn bikes are going to 2x11 or even 1x11, to eliminate front chainring problems! A road bicycle typically has 2x10 gears and this is quite enough if the rear cluster is 11-27 or similar. The number of gears on a bicycle has little to do with its cost, as cheaper bikes typically have 3x8 or more gears, and don't do a great job anyway. The quality of the gear changing mechanisms has much more to do with the cost and performance of a bicycle.

Not Necessarily... If you are not a professional athlete then the number of gears you have does not really matter. What matters is the range of the gears. You need low enough gears for going up hills and high enough gears for inclines.

    My pedal has somehow broken inside and now it spins freely without moving the chain

    Being a mechanical problem that we can't see you will need to define it better to us or yourself.

    I'm sure if you looked at it closer you would see that the pedal itself is supposed to spin freely while it turns on the crank which turns the chainring which transfers motion through the chain to the gear(s) on the right side of the rear wheel which drive the wheel forward.

    Now, where do you think the breakdown really is?

    Any search engine would then offer definitions and solutions to a well-crafted query like "bicycle chain slipping" or "bicycle gear slipping".

    Purchased a Schwinn 4 months ago from Dunham's Sporting Goods. One of the gears has already broken. Unable to ride bike until we get it repaired. What is the difference between "Sram" &...

    It's "Shimano". SRAM and Shimano are the main players in the bicycle component industry. Each has boutique parts and throw-away parts. Guess which end your your bike is on.

    Visit their websites to look around at the offerings. Just the parts on a high end bike (no frame or wheels) can set you back $2000.

    The problem needs some better definition and a trip back to the seller for evaluation. OR bite the bullet and get a better Bike Shop bike that will come with a relationship to the guys at the bike shop, who are always ready and willing to advise you.

    Hi, I just bought a second hand Huffy bicycle on eBay, and there was no instruction manual. I don't really know how to use the gears to make riding up hills easier.. can you help? I have gears on both...

    As a novice you have a lot to learn. I would encourage you to find local experienced cyclists and a local bicycle shop to assist and mentor you.

    Stick with it and endure the initial discomfort until you get into better shape and master the intricacies of bicycle riding.

    There's tons of how-to's online.

    This one is a good place to start.

    I'm a multi-decade adult cyclist and I watched this video. I thought it was so good I donated a buck to him.

    Wear a helmet and ride on-road as you would drive a vehicle. Obey the laws. Be visible, courteous and predictable.

    I need an owners manual for the land rider bike. bike takes to long to shift up or down, sometimes not at all. thank you, frank

    most bicycle owners manuals do not explain bicycle mechanics and are rarely of any use other than basic bicycle safety. You shifting issue is not specific to your brand of bicycle anyway, as it is simply a mechanical issue. Probably a good cleaning of the drivetrain and re-lube would make the bike shift better. Use a degreaser and stiff brush and water and clean up the chain and the chain rings and the gears or cogs on the back hub. Follow up with a good chain lube.
