If it won't pedal you probably have a broken bottom bracket. This needs to be done in a bicycle repair shop as you need the right tools to disassemble it.You will also need the exact replacement parts as they come packaged with the kit and diagrams for installation. Sorry I'm not more help.

Slow and tight Sram red Crank

I'm sorry, but if you don't know how to order the correct BB or properly install it you should not be building a bike from scratch, as this is probably the first of many problems you will have. As for YouTube it's not a reliable source of technical info. Try this site:
OR Contact the frame seller and find out what BB the frame takes or contact the seller of the BB and ask for assistance.

Iv been given a bugaboo cameleon from interstate and it won't open ? and the seat is also attached now ..and I can't get it off .'it was made in 2005. Thank you .

Frame won't open with seat attached and the seat should not fit on a closed frame? The seat is the locking component for the frame. Someone has used brute force to get it like that and it'll take brute force to undo the damage. Get a can of silicon spray and lubricate the seat locks and turn stroller upside down to get some to run down inside the seat legs. Press both square seat release buttons inward (one side has a small safety lock you heed to side across before you push inward) and heave up! You cant do any more damage than what may have been done.

How ti adjust the clutch on a2008 harley davidson ultra classic electric glide

To adjust the clutch, follow the clutch cable down to the frame front downtubes and find the cable adjuster. It's usually covered with a rubber bellows. Slide the bellows up or down exposing the adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the cable adjuster in all the way getting as much slack in the cable as possible.

Then take the derby cover off the primary. In the center of the clutch assembly, you'll see an adjuster screw and a lock nut. Loosen the lock nut. Turn the adjuster screw inward until you feel a resistance. DO NOT FORCE THE SCREW OR YOU'LL BREAK YOUR INNER CLUTCH HUB. If you need to, back the screw out and turn it back in just till you feel the resistance several times to get the feel of it. Once you feel the resistance, back the screw off 1/2 turn and lock the lock nut down.

Then, go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster barrel out until you have about 1/8 inch of freeplay in the cable. Tighten the lock nut and replace the rubber bellows. Replace the derby cover.

Good Luck

Agusting the clutch

To adjust the clutch on your Fat Boy, follow the cable down to the frame downtubes. You'll find a rubber bellows type cover. Slide the cover up or down to expose the cable adjuster. Loosen the lock nut and turn the ajuster inwards making the cable as short as possible.

Now, remove the derby cover. In the center of the clutch assembly, you'll see a screw and a lock nut. Loosen the lock nut and turn the screw inward just until you feel a resistance. Do not force the screw as you'll be releasing he clutch. Go in just until you feel the resistance. Try is several times to get the feel of it. Once you feel the resistance, back off on the screw between 1/2 and 1 full turn. Hold the screw in that position and lock the locknut.

Now go back to the cable adjuster and turn the adjuster outwards making the cable longer until you have about 1/8 inch (3mm) free play between the lever and the lever stanchion. Lock the lock nut and reposition the bellows cover.

Good Luck

Chain rubs inner front derailleur while in lowest gear.

on front derailleurs there should be two small cross head screws one has L(lower) next to it the other has H(higher), you will need a cross head srewdriver, you simply losten or tighten the 2 screws and it will adjust the position of the derailleur to your crankset and it that completely fails then you might need to try a different crankset
