Another pleasing production from Hilaroad. Gearing and linkage design is I think, a fascinating topic. For those who might be interested this video here on youtube /watch?v=eAniA73C6WI shows many wonderfully different gear trains, all designed to achieve the same end result. Thanks very much for all of your videos Hilaroad, the world needs more teachers like you.

thank you for an amazing video. I know its a little complex for grade 1's, but I think they will benefit from the early exposure.
So, to have optimum speed you need a Big gear on the pedal and a small gear on the wheel?
