This study attempts to measure the optimal pedaling rates for given power output levels as well as design the optimal number of gears and the corresponding gear ratios. With respect to human performance and power efficiency, the gear system in typical multi-speed bicycles is often biased and redundant. The efficiency are increased by using of five different sprocket with having various teeth. A bicycle gear system is frequently designed without ergonomic expertise in terms of performance and efficiency. The optimal performance during bicycle riding, thereby facilitating the efficiency and effectiveness of human exercise using a bicycle.
