Once you have successfully loosen the bolt, pull the seat post free of both the seat cushion and the two riders that sit on the cushion's rails. You should have two separate riders, as shown in the middle picture. Pull both the riders off of the cushion's rails. You have successfully removed your seat cushion from your bicycle frame. Congratulations!
