the front pedal is on the ground, put all weight on front pedal, then lift
the seat and the back pedal should lift into the air.. it goes all the way

(continue..)

(I wouldn't like to try idling though)

1 1/2 is like two wheels, but with the top wheel only half there - you would
pedal a bit, then coast a bit..

thats how I imagined them anyway ;-)
