There is no easy way I can think of to move the chain backwards to activate the kick shift.
Just when I thought I had a good idea....oh well.
At least I have a back up plan...go with a 3 speed Sturmey Archer hub, the one that accepts a disc brake and has a 9 spline driver so I can use cassette gears. Plan is to use one cassette gear and use the internal gears for the shifting. Probably actually only use two of them....second gear 95% of the time since it is straight thru and third gear when I need to get from A to B.
Thanks again for catching my absent mindedness
If anybody is interested, the Sturmey Archer hub I am talking about is a CS-RK3 found here:

SRAM recently decided to quit making internally geared hubs so they aren't an option IMO...Luna currently offers a SRAM hub if you would like to try it.
Shimano offers the Nexus 3 but it only has a three spline driver option and the only disc option is a center lock.
Sturmey has the 170 OLD 3 speed hub that accepts a disc but it is a three spline.
So the only current production, three speed internal hub, that accepts a disc, and uses a 9 spline driver is the Sturmey Archer CS-RK3 and the widest version is 135mm OLD.
