The body position on a tri bike is cruicial not only for aerodynamics, but for comfort as well. The saddle is the usual "sore" spot for most riders who try to find a more aero tuck. Unfortunately, there is no magic saddle that takes care of everyone's problems. Human physiology differs from person to person and saddles need to fit a wide range of riders. My advice would to try to find a bicycle shop with a saddle rental program, this will allow you to test ride a saddle before purchasing one. Also, do some research on the various saddles out there. I had to try six different saddles before settling on one that is perfect. Here are some links to saddle manufacturers:

There is an allen screw at the base of the clamping device which holds the rails of the saddle. Loosen this screw and adjust away. Make sure you tighten it well, but not too tight or you run the risk of stripping the threads very easily.

Hope this helps,

Always have the right size for the child to ride. It is very dangerous to give them a bike too big, you do not buy big shoes so do not try to save money that way. The seat height is gauged by the leg length, he should be able to get off easily, handlebars are according to personal preference and comfort. We sell 5000+ bicycles a year at our bike store and we size them to the person, do you know there are 24 different frame sizes in a 26" bike? Huffy makes one size in the ladies bike, it is a 19" frame, kind of a one size fits all, it does not work that way, not all size 10 clothes are the same length same with bikes. I say buy the child the right size and do not risk injury or death with the wrong size. Also, a helmet is a must, you don't recover from a brain injury. Remember, a broken arm mends, brains don't.

The Faulhaber company went out of business in the late 80's so no chance of contacting them - you have a vintage seat or a replica. If you want a wider seat then just go to the closest bike shop and try different ones, you will be able to find one to your liking from the dozens of models there.

I cant find where solenoid is on my ride on mower,it needs a new one clicking noise when starting.

Follow the positive battery cable. Sometimes the solenoid is on the starter itself. The top picture is a remote solenoid, can be found under the seat area if the battery is under the seat and can be under the dash area. The second picture is a starter mounted solenoid common on Kohler but can be on more makes.

Does a rubber nosed hackamore hurt the horse/pony

If you are a competent rider then you know that hackamore's use resistance or reverse pressure. The horse cause's the pain or irritation by his movements. Always ride with soft hands. Heavy handed rider's can cause pain with hackamores.

Bike battery drains fast, bike seat & area below seat gets too hot to sit on

It sounds as though the seat pan might be coming into contact with the battery and thus causing the seat to heat up and drain the battery all at once. My question would be if the battery was recently replaced and an incorrect sized battery was used. If battery isn't under the seat pan itself, check for wires that might have insulation damage that could cause a short and draining the battery. Also some people have installed heated grips on their bikes, maybe the switch for that isn't off when not in use and causing a drain.

Use something to tighten the lever tighter. Like a wrench or a steel tube. Just to give you more strength. Or you could wear gloves or a towell to turn the lever harder.

My seat post keeps slipping! I have put carbon paste etc but it is not working!


If you're riding a Speed Concept then you're bike has an aero seatpost binder. If the binder bolt on the expanding wedge doesn't place enough friction against the seatpost, the seatpost will slip. If you don't know what I'm talking about, your local Trek service technician can help you out.

How do I change the settings on the rear shocks for the 2004 honda shadow aero

Use the hook tool in the tool kit . Place it in the hole on the shock and spin the body. Usually there are 5 different tension settings. After you decide on hard or soft , set your fork pressure so when you bounce on the seat the front and back suspension drop together.

Toilet seat

Here's what I did. Unscrew them as much as possible. Then I used a bolt cutter and hacksaw to cut away as much of the plastic seat holders as possible. I could then remove most of the seat, and get better access to the screws. I then raised the loose screws enough to cut them with a bolt cutter. Soft screws cut easily. The screw heads are now out. Now, tap down on the screw/anchor and it falls into the bowl. It will stay there. The remaining problem is that you need anchors to secure the new toilet seat. Kohler wants $50. I have a usable but loose seat. Never again-Kohler.
I strongly recommend using a boltcutter. A hacksaw will tear up the bowl.

How do you remove the headrest on a 1996 ford crown victoria?

Head Restraints Each front seat is equipped with dual-post design front seat back head restraint (611A08). The front seat back head restraint is installed as follows:
  • It travels on dual posts which have notches to engage a spring-loaded catch in the guide.
  • The front seat back spring assembly retains the front seat head rest guide rod sleeve (610A16).
  • The front seat back head restraint is adjustable from its normal position to a raised position of approximately 25 mm (1 inch).
  • Pull up on the front seat back head restraint to raise it. Pushing down will return it to its normal position.

  1. Unscrew front seat head rest guide rod retainers (610A18).
  1. Pull up on front seat back head restraint (611A08). Compress foam in area of front seat head rest guide rod sleeves (610A16).
  1. Remove front seat back head restraint positioning springs. Pull front seat back head restraint up and out.
  1. Slide front seat head rest guide rod retainers onto front seat back head restraint posts.
  1. Compress foam in front seat head rest guide rod sleeve area. Install positioning springs on front seat head rest guide rod sleeves.
  1. Insert front seat back head restraint posts (notches on posts facing rearward) into front seat head rest guide rod sleeves and push down to engage positioning spring.
  1. Tighten front seat head rest guide rod retainers onto front seat head rest guide rod sleeves.
  1. NOTE: Front seat back head restraint must operate smoothly throughout its range of travel, must remain in any fixed position, and must not be freely removable from the seat back. If any of these conditions are not met, check for proper installation of positioning spring onto front seat head rest guide rod sleeve.

    Adjust front seat back head restraint by applying hand pressure, either up or down, to center area of front seat back head restraint.
