The LBS told me this:
Right shifter = don't pedal while changing gears
Left shifter = pedal while changing gears
Yea as it's a hybrid, 2 cogs, on an IGH , so to go between the 13t & 15t,
the chain has to be moving.
internal gear change just needs a slight hesitation in power application,
to let the mech work.
Change the IG, then if its a bit high or low, shift the cogs
Being in the 13 and climbing , as with all derailleur bikes
needs a bit of reduced chain pull to make the slack to
climb up to the bigger cog...
If you had double chainrings , it would be the same issue.
Read the terrain, and plan ahead.
