During commutes and bike tours, I usually use Gear #4. That's my normal gear. I interchange this with Gear #3 if there is a slight incline. When there is a hill to climb I shift to Gears #2 and #1. I rarely--RARELY, shift to Gears #5 and #6. I mean I get to use them only when I go downhill, but I really don't see the need to because I accelarate anyway.
