Fizik Aliante Saddle(3 posts)

I am attemption to mount a Fizik Aliante saddle on my 03 Lemond Buenos Aries. I noted the differing diameters of the rails on the saddles. If I have noticed properly there is no way the rails will seat within the space that the other saddle did due to the different diameters. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks

I assume you're using the carbon railed version (rather than ti railed). I've read that there are a few seatposts that will not work with the larger diameter rails that the carbon railed saddle has. I'm not sure what they are (the USE Alien comes to mind, but I could be wrong, and there are others), but this has been discussed as a problem. Sounds like you may either need a different seatpost or you may need to trade "down" for the ti railed version.

Could some one recommend a medium priced "decent" seatpost that will work with the Fizik w/carbon rails.

Thanks
