How to Adjust a Purple Bike 

To change the seat height, open the quick release lever located on the seat post. Move the seat post up or down and close the quick release lever.  At your ideal seat height, you should have no pain the front or back of your knees. Your knee should bend just slightly when the pedal is the farthest point from your body.
