    2 x 10 newbie question

    I have ordered a new Scalpel and this will be my first 2 x 10 geared bike
    Will I be able to access all gears in each front chaining or is there a recommended way of using this set up to best affect?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes, you can ride with any combination of chainring and rear cog, but there is some overlap in the middle of the range. You can ride the small chainring and the small cog, but because of the overlap in the gear ratios, it's better to switch to the larger chainring when you start to get into the smaller cogs on the small chainring, and to shift to the small chainring as you get up to the larger cogs, etc.

    Not quite sure I explained that the way I'm thinking I did.
