That front crank turns a higher gear so the cranks won't be synchronized.

I suppose, if you want higher gear, simply move your feet to the front pedals and vice versa!

I noticed both cranks are actually the same distance to the saddle so it seems you can put your feet on either one of them depending on your choice high or very high gear ratio. It's essentially a 2 speed bike....but without actually shifting gears at all...so it's also a single speed at the same time, confusing isn't it??
