Hello From Black Hawk Country!
As I await tonight's face-off vs. the Kings, I have questions about the gears on my vintage Schwinn Continental. What's the function of the lever on the left? What's the best setting for level riding? How do I position the two levers to get the lowest gear and the highest?

(As you can tell, I'm no Tour de France candidate although my wife and I and some friends will be riding in France this Sumer on a bike 'n barge trip down the Moselle. In fact, that's why I picked up the used Continental - to get my buns in shape for our grand adventure!)

Thanks for any info you can offer on the gears - and on any other aspect of using a 41-pound relic to train for a week of 30 mile a day riding.
