The easiest way is to get a wire coat hanger, straighten it and bent the last 2" back on itself almost like the barb on a fishing hook or an arrow. push this into the seatpost and when it is inside, the end should "spring" back out, and catch on the narrower top of the seatpost allowing you to pull it back out. once out, you can just push the wire through the post to remove it.

hope this helps. if you need any further advice, please feel free to ask

Tryin to find the size of the seatpost


Bicycle seatposts are measured in tenths of millimeters. A typical size might be 26.4mm. Because of this you should either A) remove your old seatpost and saddle and bring it to a bike shop or B) measure the diameter of your seatpost with a pair of metric calipers, preferable digital. You can buy them for under $20 from someplace like Harbor Freight. Suspension seatposts tend to come in one (smaller diameter) size and are fittted with the appropriate size shim. Another possibility is an adjustable shim, make just for bicycle seatposts. I highly recommend your local bike shop.

How do you raise the seat?


  • The seat connects to the seat post and the seat post inserts into the seat tube
  • you will have to first loosen the seatpost clamp located where the seat tube meets the seat post.
  • after loosening, you should be able to raise the seat to your desired height, just don't forget to tighten teh seatpost clamp.

I cannot install the bike seat pole into the bike


First, you need to make sure that this is the correct size seatpost. There are many different diameters of seatposts and you need to be sure this is the correct size. If you have a set of calipers or a micrometer you can measure the inside diameter of the frame and the outside diameter of the seatpost. if you don't have these tools you can take it to your local bike shop. If you are certain that this is the correct seatpost it may be that you just have some rust on the post that can be taken off with sandpaper or steel wool. Put a little anti sieze compound on the post, slip it into the frame and tighten the bolt. good luck

Adjusting seat on a Women's Schwinn Jet Star 26" bike


It sounds like the bike you bought was too big for you. Your only option here is to replace the seatpost with one that does not have this feature. You can pick up a seatpost at a bicycle shop and they should install it for you, too, if they are a good shop.

Hope this helps a little,

Flat tire, S500


The wheel will have to be removed firstly.
Then with something blunt, (like a spoon handle, not too flexible, and smooth,)
carefully pry up the bead of the tyre over the rim of the wheel, now it's easier to take a second lever or spoon handle, and repeat the process, a couple of inches away from the first.
Then you should easily be able to run the smooth lever, around the tyre and rim, to expose the tube.
Then push the valve through the wheel, if neccesary, and remove the tube.
You should also inspect the inside of the tyre, thoroughly, to make sure that there isn't anything in there that shouldn't be.
After you are sure all is well, just reverse the procedure.
Just make sure that the tube does not get 'pinched' between the tyre and wheel.
Hope that helps.

Schwinn women's 26" Windwood front fender doesn't fit correctly.


You have it on backwards.  I had the exact same problem.  Turn the fender around so that the arms that connect to the axel are pointing forward.  They are going to be almost parallel to the ground.  Easy Peasy lemon Squeezy.
