My bike, my first bike as an adult, finally arrived today. It is amazing.
- I am out of shape. I rode six miles and feel like I'm going to die. Guess my doctor was right about me needing exercise!
- Gears/shifters are a lot more complicated than the 10-speed I had in middle school
- Is there a primer somewhere on shifting? I am really struggling to find one that makes sense to me. There doesn't seem to be an overall logical progression of gearing...
- Pardon my lack of appropriate lingo... When I have the left shifter in the middle position and the right shifter all the way to the left, the chain seems to click when my right pedal is moving down. Is something not quite right, or should I not be using that gear combination?
Thanks, as always, for your sage advice and information!
