The Grasshopper fx. May I wrap it up for you?
||If your Grasshopper fx needs to find a compact shelter after a relaxing
tour, you can fold it within 60 seconds.
While stopping shift directly on the large chain ring and the biggest
sprocket, doing this the chain will be beautifully strained.
||The seat is removable by quick-release. After opening the quick-release
lever twist it around the quick-release hub axle 3-4 times, in order to
release the seat safety dropouts. Take off the seat, it will find place
in the retaining loops of the carrying strap later on.
||Turn the right pedal forward, like this it will find place behind the
rear rack. Press the above seat steering forward. With the under seat
steering, just open the quick-release fastener at the stem and pull the
handlebar/stem combination out of the frameside-mounted stem. To stow
the handlebar away, just slide the stem-stud into the rubber socket on
the seat tube - we simply call it the "Gummiflomp".
||Open the quick-release lever at the folding joint. Press the
quick-release hub axle against the spring-pressure downwards, in order
to unlock the safety bolt in the folding joint. Swing the front wheel
half to the back.
||The chain protection tubes are flexible in the sector of the folding
joint. The chain twists itself around 90° while folding and can be
folded to the side easily. The light cable running through the frame is
protected by a robust covering. Take the secure strap and push it
underneath the front frame into the lock and press the two frame halves
together, until the frames are stopped in their final carry and storage
position by the rubber buffer.
Dimensions folded (length x width x height):
96x50x70 cm with under seat steering
96x60x70 cm with above seat steering
For an even narrower package, you can rotate the above seat handlebar
after loosening a screw and unscrewing the left pedal.
Bear it lightly: Together with the transport cover comes a practical shoulder
strap to carry your folded Grasshopper fx. The seat can be mounted easily to the loops of the strap. You can use the
strap even without the transport cover.
||The cover protects your clothes, the car or the train against dirt and
conceals your Grasshopper fx from intrusive eyes.
On the road stow the cover into the attached bag and fix it behind the
seat tube. More impressive is only one thing: Quickly unfold your
Grasshopper fx and enjoy another ride with panorama view from your recumbent...
