Dangerous bike

published

Several brake failure since May 2014. Last one happen in busy fast moving traffic, came very close to rear ending a car by millimetres. Wheels are only single wall and do not take much to buckle. I when down a gutter last week broke 3 spokes and badly buckled destroyed the rear wheel. Tyers had to be replaced after only 3 months. I have had to also replace the rear derailure. Seat is very uncomfortable. Pedals have cracked and been replaced. Front forks vibrate severly under braking. I have stopped riding this bike because it is a death trap. Should have brought from my local bike shop, I have now spent enough in repairs.
Looks goods and cheap.
Made cheap and dangerous component failure.

How do I put the seat down?

Hi . I found a picture of a Ladies Diamond Outlook. It is the same setup on most bikes, the only other fastening method is lever operated like the quick release fastening system used on a lot of wheels. Anyway , i digress,
If you have a clamp where the seat post meets the bike frame, it will either have an above mentioned quick release lever , which you would open , thus allowing the seat to be lowered. Then close the lever again to fasten.
For the the one i saw, you will need an all-em/hex key. Insert it into the opening in the bolt and turn anti clockwise. If its tight, (which it should be as its extremely annoying when that comes loose and your seat drops down to the lowest position) grab a section of pipe or a seat post/handlebars and place it over the hex key as the extra length will dramatically increase the force you are exerting on the bolt. When it loosens , stop and see if you can rotate the seat from side to side. This motion combined with downward pressure should see thew saddle lowering. The right height is that which allows you to place both feet on the ground while seated. at the very least the toes of both feet. Re-tighten the Hex bolt (use the pipe to make tight if required)
