This is a retro direct bike I spent most of the summer figuring out. To use the high gear you pedal as normal but to use the low gear you pedal the bike backwards. Both forwards and backwards pedaling cause the bike to move forwards, but at different gear ratios.

Mother of god, that must be FUN to ride. Too bad Velospace messes up the photographs so I can't really see what it looks like. The chain is crazy, though. :P
