All you need to do is match the seat post clamp to the seat rails. 99% of seats are compatible with modern days seat posts. If yours doesn't fit, get the adjuster.

Can't find a seat that doesn't cause soft tissue tears or bony areas hurt

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:

I have a women schivinn clear creek bike -18 speeches , i want to adjust the seat but i couldnt make the seat go lower . Does that mean i have to get a new seat?

If the seat is not at its lower limit the adjustable portion could be dirty or corroded and may need some lubrication to free it up.

Why does bike size is important?

It is clear that wearing a shirt two sizes too small would be uncomfortable, and wearing a shirt two sizes too large wouldn't be good either. In the same way, riding a wrong size bike will fit badly and make you uncomfortable, too. There are two main problems, one obvious and one a little more subtle.

The first big problem with a bike that doesn't fit is saddle height. You need the saddle to be just high enough to give your legs the right extension when you pedal. Too low and your legs stay bent too much all the way around; this doesn't use your leg muscles well and you wear out quickly. Too high and you rock back and forth on the saddle as you pedal, very uncomfortable. Either extreme (too high or too low) can also be very hard on your knees.

Saddle height is adjustable, of course, and if the bike frame is at least close to the right size, you'll be able to adjust the saddle to the proper height. If the frame is a lot too small, you can usually overcome this problem by buying a longer seatpost to move the saddle back up to where you want it. (But that causes other problems we'll talk about soon.) If the frame is much too large, you won't be able to drop the seat far enough to be usable, and there is no practical way around that problem.

The saddle on a bike can be adjusted up and down several inches, even as much as a foot if you consider replacing the original seatpost with a longer one. But the handlebars can't be moved nearly as far as saddles can. Most handlebars can be adjusted up and down or forward and back only two inches or so, and even this small change is often a complicated operation of replacing parts, not just loosening a few bolts.

This can lead to all sorts of problems. If the handlebar is too far away from the saddle, you have to bend down further and reach far out to grab the bars. This puts more weight on your back, arms and hands, which is uncomfortable. Having the handlebar too close to the saddle is less of a problem, but in extreme cases it can cause your knees to bump the handlebars when you are standing up to climb a hill. Having the handlebar a lot lower than the saddle is similar to having it too far away-you have to bend far over and reach further to grab the bars, an uncomfortable position. Having the handlebars high up is not a big problem, except that sitting upright slows you down. Your legs aren't as strong when you are sitting up, and that position causes more wind resistance when riding fast or into a wind.

Bike size has a big effect on handlebar position. If the frame is too small, you'll have to push the seat up high to fit your legs. You won't be able to move the handlebar up as much, so it will be a long reach back down to grab the bars, and your back will be quite bent over. If on the other hand the frame is too large, the bars will be up high but might be too far forward (since the frame gets longer as well as taller).

How size is measured? So what does “different frame size” actually mean? And what does that frame size number, 13” or 25” or whatever, mean?

The frame size number comes from the length of the seat tube. The seat tube is that nearly vertical tube of the three big tubes that make up the "main triangle" of the bike frame. The seat tube has the bike's saddle attached at the top, and has the pedals and crank arms attached at the bottom. A short seat tube will make the pedals closer to the saddle; a long seat tube will make the pedals further away. The frame size number is the length from the center of the crank arm spindle (the axle that holds the two crank arms together) up to the top of the seat tube (where the saddle and seatpost are attached). On some bikes this is measured in inches, on others in centimeters.

But that's not the only dimension that changes for different frame sizes. As bicycle frames get taller, they also get longer. That means the distance from the saddle to the handlebars gets longer. This makes sense, since tall people don't just have longer legs than short people. They usually also have longer arms, a longer torso, and so on. So the bike frame also needs to get longer in every direction for a taller rider, not just longer from pedal to saddle. The top tube gets longer, which pushes the handlebars further away from the saddle. The head tube (the frame part that the fork attaches to) gets taller, so the handlebars will be higher up. All of these dimensions and more are fine tuned in every frame size, so the right size frame for a person's height fits well everywhere, not just in the saddle.

My motor cycle will not start if you turn the key it just makes a clicking noise

It sounds a lot like the battery is dead. You can either try jump starting it (12 volt) or replacing the battery. The battery itself is locaated under the saddle. Remove the rear seat by removing the allen head screw that attaches the rear seat to the rear fender. When you remove the rear seat, you will see an odd looking hex head bolt with a cylindrical cap that holds the main saddle in place; remove that also. The main saddle will lift up and back to reveal the battery.

If it starts and the battery charges (run the motorcycle for 20-30 minutes), you are good to go. If the battery does not charge after running it for that amoount of time, you will need to replace the battery.

Raise the seat

First take off the seat, turn it upside down, unscrew the two screws and two bolts that hold the two parts of the seat together. Separate the pillion and rider seat (takes a bit of wiggling), now you can concentrate on the riders seat. undo the four screw that hold all the rubber gromets down (make a note of the direction they are facing), and unbolt the two small bolts on the front. The seat should now come apart, move the bracket at the back of the seat down a hole. Re-attach the two halfs of the seat at the front but this time one hole up. You should see a gap between the two halfs. Put the rubber gromets back on, this is where I went wrong the first time, TURN THE FRONT TWO 180 degrees and leave the back ones how they are. Screw everything back together and you have one raised seat my long legged friend.

How to adjust saddle postions

you can loosen the bolt under the saddle, and adjust it...

for me, the best saddle position for long distance is when it's facing downwards a little bit, so that you can move your legs freely.
