    I just got a new Cannondale Ironman 600 with the brake/shifting combination up front. My old bike had had the shifting on the down tube. I took it for granted that I would know how to shift this new one. BUT, for the life of me, I can't figure it out.

    I can only get it to shift in one direction and now I can't get out of the small ring on the front and the back. So, how do I shift it back in the other direction? I have narrowed the options down to two:

    1. I am missing something (this is my strong first choice).
    2. The shifters on this new bike are broken (I doubt it).

    Thank you all for your help.

    ***Ha! I figured it out. You push BOTH the brake and the shifter to go back up and just the shifter piece to go down***

    Please ignore the question then. Thank YOU!
