HP Velotechnik Gekko: Attaching the seat cover

A customer who recently bought an HP Velotechnik Gekko was mystified as to how to attach the nylon seat cover.

He wrote me:

“Does HPV make a rain cover that actually fits the mesh seat?  That one I bought from you is unusable.”


I replied:

Hi J___,
Thanks for checking in.
Attaching the seat cover…
The top of the seat cover attaches to the inside of the seat back pocket.
You’ll see the velcro.
The bottom of the cover attaches at the front of the seat, to plastic hooks on the bottom of the seat.
Sorry for forgetting to show you how to do it.

This may have solved three mysteries at once for this rider: Why is there velcro in the seat back pocket?! What the heck are those plastic hooks for?! And, yes, how in the world do you put on the seat cover?!?

Have fun, stay healthy, and keep your seat clean,
Robert
