Gekko fx: how wheels release, where to attach blinky lights

HP Velotechnik Gekko fx 26

 

A customer who recently bought an HP Velotechnik Gekko fx 26 wrote me with a couple questions.

Hi Robert,

I’m likely to pose a few questions/comments over the next week or so.

1) how do the front wheels come off?
I imagine there is some quick release system you’ll have to show me ….

2) I have to find a place to put front and rear “blinkies”…….

Sent from my iPhone-please pardon typos and grammatical shortcuts!

Thanks….

Hi Ed,

Front wheels come off with an allen key.  There is one bolt to release.  Quick and easy.
I attach front and rear blinkies as follows:
Front: onto the vertical derailer mast at the front of the bike
Rear: to the horizontal strut on the back of the seat
Another option is to use helmet-mounted lights. Bell helmets have a model that has mounting points for lights.
