The Gecko is your child’s first ticket to ride. We installed a handle under the saddle so you can help them get started! Your son or daughter may not know left from right yet, but they’ll learn on the Gecko to balance, stand out of the saddle and stop at all intersections. We geared the Gecko to excel on pump tracks, trails and bike paths and Super-Gecko-Strength maneuvers.
Geckos Best fit for riders with an inseam of 14" to 18". First-time riders feel safest with their bottom on the saddle and their feet flat on the ground. A child with a 15" inseam will fit the Gecko with the integrated seat/seat post dropped as low as possible. Once kids get comfortable on two wheels, they'll want to sit on the saddle with only the balls of their feet on the ground. Thus, a confident rider with a 15" inseam and a first-time rider with a 17" inseam, each will feel comfortable set-up with the same position on their bikes.
The Gecko comes with a flip-flop hub or double-sided hub that is threaded on both sides. This allows you to add a higher or lower gear. Kids who are not ready to shift gears yet but ride in different terrain can get a second gear, which can be used by simply turning the rear tire around. We have used this option on our kids with a higher gear for biking longer distances on paved roads to school vs a lower gear for our rides on bike parks or mountain biking.
