Gears ptovide diffetent Torques for different requirements thus reducing human effort like in using a lever for lifting heavy objects.At start and riding on ramp you require maximum torque, thus a larger gear, whereas on slope and at maximum speed you require minimum torque, thus smaller gear , for optimum human energy requirement. The size of gears are optimised for this purpose.
