The holder is attached to the seat post and will fit a broad spectrum of round seat posts with the perimeter 6.9-10.1 cm (2.72-3.95 inch). Holder fits on vintage, city and sporty bicycles. If your bike is really special and you want to be completely sure about the perimeter, please measure it.
Make sure that your bike seat is at least 4 cm above the frame so there is enough place to mount a Kick Ass Bike Plate. Please have in mind that a basket or a child seat on the back rack could prevent you from mounting a Kick Ass Bike Plate with a holder. However, you can still mount a plate with cable ties to another part of the bicycle.
How to measure the perimeter of the seat post:
If you don’t have a sewing meter, you can use a longer piece of paper or thin rope. It will not be a precise measurement but will be sufficient enough for bike plate holder.
- Place the longer piece of paper or thin rope around the seat post. – see pictures
- Mark the measurement with a pencil on paper or knot on the rope.
- Measure the length of the paper or rope with a ruler or measuring meter.
How to install a holder with Kick Ass Bike Plate?
Choose the appropriate size of circular part of the holder, that it will fit the seat post.
Usually, removing seat post from the bicycle is not needed.
Most of the time a smaller size of the circular part will be more suitable (with label 27.2).
Install the appropriate number of rubber spacers into the inner side of rounded part of the holder until the diameter won’t fit the seat post.
Push the holder together with rubber spacers to 1-3 cm to the seat.
Fix the holder with the long screw and a nut. (Use the bigger allen key.)
Connect both parts of the holder and adjust the holder’s angle (with the middle screw and a nut).
Attach your Kick Ass Bike Plate! (Use the short screws and smaller allen key.)
