Semcycle with twisted seat

I own a Semcycle 24" with a bolted seat pin. The seat is twisted slightly to the
right, I would estimate a few degrees. I can bang it straight but it works its
way back into the twisted state after riding a while. I also notice that I tend
to ride with my upper body twisted to the right, especially when doing
challenging things like racing. Could that be a natural reaction to counteract
the seat twist or would a proper counteraction be the other way and so the body
twist is just me? Also, is there a way to permanently align the seat on this
Semcycle (I never remember XL or Pro or DeLuxe but you know what I mean).

Could the frame be twisted a bit? (sounds like you have the deluxe frame with
the seat pin). Are all the parts tight?

Re: Semcycle with twisted seat

Do you have a bolt that goes through the seat post and frame halves? If
yours is like a Schwinn it can easily be fixed. All I had to do was take
a metal file and make an oval shape in the hole. This allowed enough
room to straighten out the seat post and seat. I have found with
Schwinns that there is a bit of variation between the holes on the
actual seat post and also on the top mounting bracket. I hope this is
the type of seat your talking about, if not, good luck!
