sore neck and shoulders (advise please)

Hello all, can anyone give me some advice about correct saddle height and distance from the stem. I believe my 18" mountain bike may be set up wrong and leading to me having a really painful stiff neck and shoulders after I've been out for a ride. Any help appreciated.

All depends on you and your bike. You might consider taking in to a local bike shop and having someone with a trained eye take a look. Also, be sure to bend your elbows when you ride.
