How do you adjust the seat
Hi there Vriddick
To adjust the seat for height, there is a locking bolt on the seat post, below the seat. Loosen this and the seat should drop down the hole. Lift it up to your specified height and tighten up the bolt. You can also use this method to adjust the direction of the seat in relation to the handlebars, left or right.
If you need the seat adjusted for its angle. Under the seat itself are two bolts clamping two large circular bits of metal, undo these bolts and tilt the seat downwards or upwards, retighten when you have it just right.
Why does my eZip bike have no power
If your bike is experiencing intermittent power, it could be that the prongs are misaligned or dirty. Or, it could be as simple as the prongs not being pushed all the way into the battery itself. Any of those issues could cause your bike to lose power, especially if you're riding on a bumpy bike path.

How to change ball bearings on a crank assembly
To be honest, without knowing what kinda of bike you have, I would just be guessing. Since this is an old unanswered question, I would suggest watching Video's from RJ the Bike Guy and Bikeman4U on YouTube. They show you how to disassemble and rebuild Bottom Bracket, which is what you are really asking for help to do. Disassembly is very important to know, as for older bike have stuck or seized fixed cups.

Bottom bracket need replaced.
impossible to tell you without knowing the bike brand and model and year, although you have provided that 1999.
If you take into a bike shop, which is the usual place to purchase the parts you need, they will be able to tell you what size Bottom Bracket will fit your bike, also what options you will have for replacement cranks and bottom bracket. This could be a very complicated issue when replacing with parts that are 11-12 years newer, the shop will be best equipped to give you all your options.

What size is my bottom bracket for a Nishiki Kinzua 29 Men's Mountain Bike
hi if i remember correctly to size up for a bottom bracket, flip your bike upside down resting on handle bars and seat carefully not to damage anything, and where the bottom bracket go's through the frame of the bike you take a tape measure and measure the width of only the frame housing where the bottom bracket go's into this is a lot easier to do when the crank arms are removed. also on some bottom brackets when removed from the bike has all the data stamped on it depending on the type of bottom bracket. if not measure the width of the frame where the bottom bracket sits in too and that will be the size of the bottom bracket you need, then determine which type it is once you have remove the cranks arm which are attached to the bottom bracket could be splined drive or square tapered type bottom bracket basically the shape of the metal part that the crank arms push and bolt on to then match up on a cycle part website.

by controller box there is a plug 5-8 wires. unhook them. Open the box and buy a gator-skin or Kevlar tyre and liner with puncture proof tube and relax for next 3 years. Dont be cheap on rear, it can be a pain and be careful of wires on axle. don't stress them. 2 person job sometimes. get zipties too.
I have a Schwinn cruiser six and would like to
lots of bike repair manuals at your local library. That is how I got started 30 years ago. Bicycle parts haven't changed much over the last 100 years, the concepts are still the same, so just about any bicycle repair manual will give you all the basics.
Park Tool manual is good, Bicycling Magazine has one, Leonard Zinn has a couple good ones. Barnett's manual is the bees knees of bicycle repair, used by professionals worldwide.

Denali GMC 700C Women's road bike wrong tires!!!
Can you explain why you think the tires are too big? Do they NOT fit the rims? What condition was this bike in when you bought it? If the brake pads line up with the rims then the wheels are correctly sized for the frame.
