My newbie question is how does one effectively use the front derailer gears? My last bike was a five speed cruiser .
I'm used to the simple biggest to smallest depending on speed/hills.
The hybrid bike I am thinking about has 24 gears :confused:
What is the proper way to use the front derailer? Is it a simply linear when using the "biggest" with the "smallest" up front do you shift the front derailer and go all the way to the smallest in the rear to get to the next gear?
Does this make any sense?
