How to remove the seat

Hi Guys

Stupid question but how do you do that ?

Unscrewing first that's ok. But the strap prevent me to remove it and its attachment is easily removable... :-(

Just gotta fenangle it until it comes off. Keep repositioning the strap until you get enough play to slide the seat far enough forward to un clip it.

Before taking the bolt off, pull upwards and back on the seat strap until it has some play in it. Remove the screw and wiggle the seat back through the strap as far as possible then pull back and up and it will pop off. I don't like the strap so I removed it and side from being less crap on the bike there is no more fight removing the seat.
