Question about Cycling
Changing a chainring will also involve shortening or lengthing the chain, as well as moving the front derailler up or down. It will also mean adjusting the gear cable. Not so simple. By "higher range" I assume that you want better hill climbing gears, which are the LOW gears. In most cases this can be done by changing the gear cluster on the back to incorporate a larger sprolet with more teeth. Rear deraillers will usually be able to accomodate this, if not you will need a new rear derailler. You will also need to have the gear cable tuned again. If however by "higher gears" you mean MORE gears, buy a new bike. Changing the nnumber of gears on a bike is expensive as it involves changing a number of components and may not work well anyway.

Actually no! you can visit your bike shop and ask them for higher range. What they do is change the front wheel ring in order to give you higher range.
