I think that the discovery 102 (now discontinued) fits on both the seat tube (where the seat post goes into) and the back seat stays. (near where the childs feet rest)

See the image in the link below:

Report the fault to the supplier and send the saddle back for an exchange replacement or swallow the cost and replace it yourself.

Without knowing the make and model of the saddle it's impossible to state whether it can just be re-covered, but with most modern saddles it's impossible. Without knowing the size and location of the rip, and the material it's made from it's also impossible to suggest a repair technique, but if it's directly on the part of the saddle which has the greatest wear then repair is not a practical option as it will not last.

I need a seat for a Nel Lusso can I buy it separately?

most bicycles have saddles with standard ~1/4" diameter rails that can be interchanged on any bike. Caveat emptor: I do remember seeing some Huffy bikes back in the '80's and '90's that had flat vertical blade like rails that were only used by Huffy. If that is the case you can always get a new seat post (make sure you get the right diameter to fit in the seat tube, it's stamped on the seat post near the bottom) and a new saddle that will work with the seat post. Any local bike shop can help you get the right size and fit that you need. ($15+ for a seat post, $30+ for a saddle).

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.

measure the diameter of the hole in the frame where the seat post goes. Get online and order one. They vary in size so get a precise measurement.

How to get a giant trinity a1 tt seatpost?

Bicycle seat posts are pretty standard items and you could just use a generic replacement if you want as long as you get the right size diameter.

If you still have at least part of the old seat post, then just use some precision calipers to measure the outside diameter of the seat post and that will tell you what size replacement you need to get.

This needs to be a pretty acurate measurement, within a tenth of a millimeter, so eyeballing it with a ruler just won't do it.

Otherwise, if you are missing the old seat post entirely, then you can try just measuring the inner diameter of the bike frame where the seat post slides into your bike tube and you should get the same measurement.

The easiest way by far is just to bring the bike into your local bike shop and get them to measure your seat post size with a special seat tube measuring tool they have. Then you can just order a new seat post based on that size from wherever you want, either right at the store or online.

Good luck and take care.

Raising seat on x games bmx bike

A good bike shop will sell you a new seat post. You should take the bike with you as the posts come in different diameters. They can also cut it to the proper length for you if you don't have the tools.
