Welcome to our series, Ask Gearist where we answer your questions about the outdoors and the gear that gets you there!

In this edition, Moe E. asks:
“Howdy! Thank you for putting this series together. I’m a new cyclist looking to complete my first triathlon in 2015. Do you have any suggestions or tips on how to most efficiently use the gears on my road bike to help with performance? Right now I have one gear that I feel comfortable in and just stay there for my entire rides. I know I’m probably working my legs harder then they need to in spots and not enough in other spots. Help!”
