Title: Bicycle control device with combined operation of multiple output elements

Abstract: A mechanical operating device comprises a first output element; a first output element positioning mechanism that positions the first output element in a plurality of first output element positions; a second output element; a second output element positioning mechanism that positions the second output element in a plurality of second output element positions; and a first input element that moves between a first rest position and a first actuating position. An operating unit is operatively coupled to the first input element, to the first output element positioning mechanism and to the second output element positioning mechanism so that movement of the first input element between the first rest position and the first actuating position operates at least one of the first output element positioning mechanism and the second output element positioning mechanism.
