    Hey!

    Hi, well I'm new! I'm a keen biker but only cover about 8 miles per trip . OK not the longest trips but I'm going to make them bigger.

    Anyways, I own a universal 5 speed bike (5 speed rear gears and 3 speed middle "Range" (as I call them) gears. That makes 8 speed... So why are bikes like this sometimes called 21 speed and 18 speed and stuff ??? Weird if you ask me.

    Well see ya guys! Hope to get to know some people on here
