Best Answer

Both, and several inbetween. The gear is chosen to get the same pedalling effort regardless if the course is uphill, flat or downhill at the moment.

Ans 2 - Most pro riders will use all the gears necesary to maintain a good 'spin' speed. (rpm of the crank )

What is the difference between a high gear and a low gear on a bike?

In high gear the rear wheel makes about 4-5 turns for each turn of the pedals, and in low gear the rear wheel might make less than one turn for each turn of the pedals. High gears makes you fast and low gears make you strong. Low gears are easier to push, so they're good for going uphill. High gears lets you put power to the wheel even when you're already moving fast to go even faster..

Do manual transmission cars get better gas mileage when driven at low speeds in a high gear or a low gear?

Not sure when you say low speed. Not knowing what your driveline ratio is I will just use some basic numbers .If 20 MPH is your speed and you were in first gear your engine RPM's would be 3000, if you were in second gear at 20MPH your engine RPM's would be 2500 , if you were in third gear at 20MPH your engine RPM's would be 2000. A difference of 1000 RPM's from low to high gear. Lower engine RPM's less fuel used.
