    Info on gears

    I am looking for tons of information on what to know about Bicycle gears. Any and all information would be grand.

    Specifically:

    1. Define 'higher' and 'lower' and how to count them(I find this confusing)

    2. How are gears measured

    3. How does one replace gears
    A. Can you replace just one individual gear(say, for instance, that a single gear is messed up and the rest are fine)
    B. Can I replace the smaller gears, that I don't use, with bigger ones to increase the resistance

    Thanks
