Default Re: Gear changer as clutch lever?

My thoughts on the manual clutch with the centrifugal clutch:

1. I use it to start the engine when I pedal start. The clutch must be engaged for power to get to desired location, i.e. wheels.

2. I releast the manual clutch when I wish to pedal. It provies for less rolling resistance.

3. If I'm idling for long periods of time, I pull the manual clutch because the auto-clutch occasionally will engage at random at at stop. Brakes should be depressed so bike doesn't move or lurch.
