Project Main Details

Training video for bicycle retailers 
Can you play the role of a trusted teacher for a corporate product education video? A bicycle manufacturer seeks your help for a web video. You'll explain the technology behind the gears, chains, and drivetrain parts: chainrings, cassette cogs, derailleurs that propel a bike.

Are you the kind of tech-savvy person that can explain how a manual car transmission works to someone who'd never driven stick, and have the concept understood in under 2 minutes? That's the authoritative teacher type we're seeking.

This script is technical and heavy with bicycle industry jargon. It helps if you're a mountain bike enthusiast and already know the lingo.

Your tone should convey a trusted tech guy next door, a teacher who can break down complex ideas into easily-understood pieces.
Don't put the audience to sleep with an old-man professorial snooze-fest, but don't fake a chirpy, upbeat tone either.
The model for both the video project and the VO performance, is a Khan Academy Youtube videos, like this one:

Script Details

**custom demo required** 
You want the chain to transfer power with as little friction, and as little tension as possible. Here’s how that works.

If you ride a 24 tooth chaining with a 24 tooth rear cog, you have a 1:1 gear ratio.

A 40 tooth ring and a 40 tooth cog produces the same 1:1 ratio. In either example, one pedal revolution equals one wheel revolution.

But the bigger chainring distributes the pedaling load over more teeth. Each tooth lasts longer, and so does each roller on the chain.

The chain wraps less acutely around a larger cog.

So each chain plate hinges less around its connecting pin. By using a larger chainring, friction is reduced at every link. That means better shifting, quieter pedaling, and better performance.

A larger chainring also reduces chain tension, and that means a longer life for the chain, cassette, and chainrings.

The crankarm is a lever. It multiplies the force from your leg and the chainring applies it to the chain.

The smaller the chainring, the greater the distance from the your foot to the chainring. A longer lever arm applies greater force to the 24 tooth ring than the 40 in this example.

For the same 1:1 ratio, the 40 tooth ring applies less tension to the chain . Decreased chain tension increases the life of your drivetrain.
