    Seat Adjustment Schwinn Stingray Style

    Hello my friends here at the forums, I recently picked up a Paul Frank stingray bike, reminiscent of the Scwhinn Stingray Cruisers, my question is can I adjust the seat height on these bikes? Anyone have any knowledge? It looks like I can if you look at the rear in the pic, the rear bar has slotted holes seems like I fit them through the axle bolt however its a coaster bike not sure if that will change anything let me know please! Thanks!!

    Just remove the nuts from the rear axle, move the seat bar up where you need it and reinstall the nuts. Then raise the seat post to get everything more or less level.

    +1, except that you usually have to loosen both the post and sissy bar and try to raise together. If the seat post is sticky, disconnect the sissy bar so you can twist the saddle to rais as you would with a regular seat, then put together when finished.
