The bike is a late 90's Specialized Expedition. The shifting is the reversed spring type (you twist the opposite way). I have heard it is easier for beginners to shift this way. I am not sure on the exact model of derailleur, but it's low end and the shifters have the separate display that shows the gear selection. The current setup works fine, I just don't like the reverse twist on the gripshift.
