Adjusting Bike Gears
A bicycle gear, or gear ratio, or speed refers to the rate at which the rider's legs turn compared to the rate at which the wheels turn. Bicycle gearing refers to how the gear ratio is set or changed. On some bicycles, there is only one gear so the ratio is fixed.

My Bike In Bits
This is what my bike looked like when it arrived in it's giant cardboard box.
As you see lots of bits needed to be fitted to it, cables etc and adjusted so it was a minor miracle that it actually worked at the end of it. I spent a day dismantling the gear shifter to work out where the cable went into it before discovering it didn't need to be dismantled at all and is was in fact very hard to put back together again. This took 2 days.
