I don't know the measurements of that bike, but I bought a 99 , 750 monster for my wife, I had to take the rear spring way down, no spring left, rigid suspension, and I had to lower the yoke on the forks as far as I could, I got quite a bit out of it, like 2 1/2 inches of height, now she can touch the ground. made it a totally different bike.

How can I lower my Cannondale E 440 sothat my feet will touch the ground when I am sitting on it and it is not moving?


Hi, Cecil here are some options for lowering your bike depending on your needs and wallet:
1. Rear shock lowering kit.
2. Front fork lowering kit.
3. Shorter rear shocks.
4. Shorter front forks.
5. Thinner padded seat.
6. Lower profile tires.
Please be aware that some of these options or a combination of options will require a shorter kickstand or your stock one modified. For more information about your issue and free downloads that you will need please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

My first bike ever, how to adjust the saddle of mongoose pro zero-g, this one i got seem like the saddle pipe is almost touch the rear shock.


Mongoose has a manual...

Get on the web and start researching anything you wonder about.

"how to adjust bicycle seat" for example.

If your seatpost is so low it touches the other parts of the bike maybe it's too low or your bike is too big for you. You're not supposed to be able to touch the ground with your feet while seated.

A reputable Bicycle Shop would have fit the bike to you before you took it home.

Seek out local bike shops and clubs if you think you'll get serious about riding. Many members readily adopt novices for mentoring.

Sir iam 5 feet 3' tall iam very much interested in buying r15 does it suit and am slim too


Do not decide unless you take a test ride on the Bike and feel the performance , comfort and handling to your liking. If this suits then the style of your bike handling can be only relative.
Choose only after you think the bike is easy to handle.

Proper bike seat height for individuals


Loosen the seat post clamp and sit on the bike. This should be adjusted wiyh your feet flat on the ground and the seat firmly touching your bottom. Tighten the post clamp bolt and enjoy the ride.

I am 5-8" male with a 29" inseam. Is the adult


Different manufacturers measure the frames differently so you can't really go by stated frame sizes. The correct way to measure the size of bike to yourself is to put your leg across the bar and stand with both feet on the ground, keeping close to the saddle. There should be around 4 inches clearance between the bar of the bicycle and your ****. The saddle of the bike is at the right height when you have your feet on the pedals, and either of the pedals is fully down, next the ground, and you don't have your knee bent while sitting on the saddle. This makes it easier for cycling as if you can't straighten your legs while cycling long distances they get very tired quickly. This means that it's normal to have to tiptoe or let the bike over to one side when you're sitting on the saddle stationary.

How to lower my bike so my feet can touch the ground


Loosen the triple clamps at the front of the bike, and make sure you evenly allow each of the forks through the clamps. You may need offset risers to make room for the fork tubes to come through, depending on how low you need to go. For the back, if you don't have an adjustable shock, you'll either need a lowering set, or a shorter shock.

Lower


If it has a mono shock in back there are lowering links you can purchase and install to lower the rear and the front can be lowered by dropping the tubes in the trees or softening up the springs.
I would like to make a suggestion though...
If you lower the bike the suspension will not work as it was designed to.
This is an issue I am trying to overcome with my boy since we have moved to a bigger bike- he can not touch the ground without leaning the bike WAY over. To quote a famous short moto cross racer from the 70's- "they dont pay me to put my feet down". Even I at 6' 2" find it difficult to rest both feet on the ground on some of the newer dirt bikes. But if I do find one that I can rest both feet on the ground comfortably I soon find that I am bottoming out the suspension and riding over the limits of the bike.
This is just my personal opinion... I would rather ride a tall off road bike and have the suspension at hand than ride one thats comfortable at rest and not have that suspension when I need it. Unless you are going to be stopping at a bunch of stop signs then ride it the way it is or get a smaller bike ( maybe a 125).
