  2. What brand of bike is this?

  3. Question. My bike seat goes side to side. I tightened the screws as tight as I could. How can I stop it from going side to side?

  4. Thanks! This was helpful! 🙂

  5. There is actually 3 adjustments on the seat you can also slide it front and back once it’s loose.. put you closer or farther away from the handle bars

  26. nice,i just put some beach cruiser handle bars on my old mountain bike.( Couldn’t hack the riding position,killed my wrists and back) looking forward to getting out on it. 🙂

  27. Hey Ryan, can I put mountain bike handlebars on a beach cruiser? I just bought a new cruiser, but I soon realized I don’t like the wide cruiser handlebars. There’s no gears.

  28. What the weight limit for a cruiser like that?

  29. Hi, I just bought a huffy women’s New Lusso bike; I guess it’s a cruiser type bike. I am trying to adjust the height of the handle bars, but whoever assembled it seemed to make it too tight. I’m having trouble turning the stem allen key part. Any suggestions, please? Do all stem allen keys turn the same way to either tighten or loosen (ya know, like, righty-tighty; lefty-loosey?) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I tried to adjust the angle of my handlebars and now they give when I ride over something rough or put too much weight on them.  I tightened them as much as I can.  What else can be done?

  31. lol fatty

  32. not Kilter – it is called "PITCH" forward pitch and backward "PITCH"

  33. my first crappy video Billy February 14, 2021 @ 9:35 pm

    Beach cruisers piss me off. Go get a street bike from like 1950.

  34. Instructions not clear enough, got dick caught in spokes!

  35. what about the alignment of handlebars with the front wheel? is there an adjustment?

  36. Great tips! I did not know you could make so many adjustments to fit your individual comfort level. That was pretty neat! Thanks so much!

    I have a brake pedal that won’t bust lose I have a pedal wrench and it still won’t come off it’s a old beach cruiser

  38. Just bought myself a beach cruiser and this video was most helpful when setting it up. Thank you.

  39. I have a basic cruiser and I am interested in installing cable breaks, can you share a video or some advice?

  40. I want a beach cruiser, got the money but no one is selling in Sweden…

  41. Thank you, but why can’t you adjust the seat level by pulling a lever? That’s much simpler than having to use tools.

  42. Nice idiots guide!
