For those of you who choose to rock the three-wheeled-world, I’ve got two words: “friggin’ awesome.” This thing — the Gekko fx — exceeds all expectations.
I’m still in the middle of unpacking this baby. It always takes time, HP Velotechnik is generous with packing material. And I have already discovered a secret feature that HP Velotechnik does not advertise! And it’s not that the name is Gekko, not Gecko. No, it’s something else entirely. They didn’t tell me this, I never expected this. I’m not going to say what it is — I like that it’s a secret — but this is the coolest friggin’ thing I’ve ever seen on a folding bike of any format, recumbent or standard frame. I’ll give you a clue: Brompton does something similar (different, and more British, but similar).
