It best to use only 3 to 4 gears in the back for every one in the front . like 1 (Smallest )in the front then 7,6,5, maybe 4 in the back, 2 (middle ) in the front ,goes with 6,5,4,3 and with the 1 ( biggest) in the front maybe 4 ,then 3,2,1 . this cut down on cross-cogging and save on the parts like the chain.
