To change up a gear, the shifter is used to pull on the cable, which causes the front mech to push the chain from a smaller to a larger chainring or the rear mech to push the chain from a smaller to a larger sprocket. To change down a gear, the cable is released, causing the springs in both mechs to move the chain to a smaller chainring or sprocket. Each mech moves around a pivot point.
