What size bike seat post does Riviera Kulana have?


there are about 20+ seat post sizes out there. Your best option is to take the bike to your local bike shop and have them measure it and provide you with the proper size (about $20-100 depending on quality and materials), a new saddle will run you in the same price range. If you don't have a local bike shop, you can measure the inside diameter of you seat tube using some micrometers, make sure you use a metric one as all bikes are measured in metric denominations. A couple common sizes these days are 26.8 and 27.2 but there are many different sizes and each bike manufacturer will use multiple sizes throughout their line of bikes.

Seat post shim


Hi, 27.2mm is a standard size for a seatpost, popular sizes includes 30.9mm om newer mountain bikes and 31.6mm on older since it stadardized to some extent. There are still many other odd sizes out there on mostly older bikes.

If you can, get a seatpost that is 27.2mm that fits directly into your frame, with no shim if possible. that will only add weight and creaks.

Also keep in mind that the length is important when you specify a seatpost. You can use websites like this to see what is possible/available before you order:
Seatposts Chain Reaction Cycles

You will also have to consider if you need some setback, if the seat clamp is directly on the post, it is called a zero setback post like this:

Looking for a seat post and seat clamp for a schwinn meridian


Seat posts and clamps are a generic item, not specific to any particular bike. Just check with a bike shop, or alternatively Walmart, as they sell Meridians.

I just bought a used Sportsmobile built in 2002. The Porta Potti was never used butI need a users manual to figure out how to use and maintain it. I can't find a model or serial number. It just says...


According to the Sportsmobile custom website, the porta potti you have is called a Thetford Electric flush porta potti. There is only one electric flush made by Thetford, so a model number is not necessary to locate instructions or a manual that shows maintenance and use ect.

Here is a link to the manual, parts list and usage instructions for your Porta Potti. When the page opens, click on the link on the top right hand side that says "manual" to download a PDF version to save to your computer.

I hope this helps? If you are happy with my solution, please rate it on Fixya! Thanks!

Go to your local bike shop with your seat post, they come in all different sizes, so you need to bring it with you.

I can't get the bike seat stem to come loose


I'm going to assume you that when you say, "bike seat stem" you mean "seat post". I'm also going to assume that the bike frame is made of steel and the seat post is most likely chromed steel.

What most likely is the problem (absent of more details) is that the seat post has rusted to the inside of the frame. If the bike is stored outside this is a very common problem on less expensive bikes.

I have never heard of a bike manufacturer putting any kind of paint or other anti-corrosion inside of the bike frame to prevent rust.

You can try spraying a little "Liquid Wrench" or WD40 oil on the seat post where it inserts into the frame. Let it sit over night and then tap it with a mallet to try to break the rust free. Use a pair of Channel Lock pliers to get a bite on it and see if you can twist it out.

On a steel bike the very last resort to use, if you by all means have to have that seat post out, is to apply heat to it, with a propane or oxy-acetylene torch. This will probably destroy the paint job and weaken the seat post.

If the bike frame is aluminum, you can get something similar to galvanic corrosion and this can seize the seat post in the frame. The remedy is the same as with the steel frame (but excessive heat and easily melt aluminum very quickly and leave a puddle of molten metal on the garage floor). If the frame is carbon fiber and the seat post is aluminum, carbon and aluminum don't like to touch each other and they will start a natural chemical reaction of corrosion which could cause the two to stick together (don't ever use a flame on a carbon fiber bike, it would be the end of the bike and just plain stupid). Anytime aluminum touches carbon or titanium an anti-seize compound should be applied to the parts.

Once you have the seat post removed, use your finger to wipe grease inside the seat tube and on the seat post before reinserting it and you won't have this problem again.
