Transmission and Gears Bicycles come in a huge amount of shapes and
sizes for all possible uses. More often than not each of these different
cycles needs unique gears for their particular use. At AW Cycles you
will find parts for all gear systems whether you are upgrading,
replacing or enhancing your bike set up. Gear Systems A gear system
consists of shifters, which connect by cable to a front and rear mech.
This moves the chain across the sprockets on the back, or the chainrings
on the chainset, altering the gear ratios. Chainrings are attached to
cranks that connect to a bottom bracket that allows it to turn and
propel the bicycle forward. All bikes with gears include these parts
with some variations, such as hub gears. Differing Types of Bike There
are differences in the shifting, mechanisms and ratios between road and
MTB gear systems, as well as even bigger differences between the two
types in general. We stock all sorts of sprockets and chainrings to suit
BMX cycles and other single speed bikes and also fixed wheel track
