  • Do not see option here to add photo Commented Mar 17, 2021 at 7:25
  • There is an icon in the edit window for that. Commented Mar 17, 2021 at 12:06
  • Hi, welcome to bicycles. If you can't add a photo, you should at least add a link to your bike (model and year) on the manufacturer website so that people can look up the specs for it.

Looking at the specs on Merida Website you have Fulchee through axles, FH1200 and FH1700.

Looking at these on the Fulchee website (for the front FH1200 at least) I see that the lever for releasing the thru-axle is integrated and needs to be pulled out for use, termed a hidden lever design apparently. You'll see a slotted piece instead of a hex key fitting, you need to pull this slotted piece out and it is the lever you need to use to unthread the thru-axle.

    I bet my 5$ that the follow up photo/question will show that the lever is broken ...
