Tech Talks Presented by Park Tool is a monthly video series hosted by Park Tool's own wrench whisperer, Calvin Jones. The series covers the A to Zs of some of the most prevalent repair jobs, with the fourteenth episode taking a closer look at some clever tricks when it comes to your bike's gearing.
Today's 1-by drivetrains can be set up for a massive range of rider abilities and terrain, but it takes some know-how to get things dialed in so your gearing best suit your needs. Calvin and Ben are here to help you with that by explaining the effects of different chain ring and cog sizes, and they even have graphs!
