Seatpost for Fizik braided rail saddle.

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Seatpost for Fizik braided rail saddle.

Any recommendations from you folks on a post for a Fizik Arione CX saddle with the oval shaped carbon braided rail saddle? Just observed that my Bontrager 1 bolt will only fit round rails.....

When I got my Fizik Aliante, I contacted Fizik directly and here are the
types of posts that they approved for use with carbon braided rails:
(Personally, I'm going with Fizik's Cyrano)

Your list didn't make it through....I'm leaning towards the Cyrano.

LH,

The "list" is the 2nd Photo.



(Try to delete the photo from your response to me.
Original photo was too large so I resized it.)

And...can't go wrong with the Cyrano!

I have an Antares with the braided rails. With my BMC I have no choice but to use the stream post that comes with the bike. On my old bike I was using a Ritchey WCS one bolt similar to the one on the lower left of the picture 2ndgen posted. Ritchey sells a specific 7x9.6mm clamp designed specifically for the Fizik carbon rails.

I'm using an Easton EC90 seatpost with my carbon railed Arione CX. It works well if you don't mess with it. Hardware is a little finicky if you're swapping/adjusting all the time.

3T Doric and anything else that uses a two bolt/beam clamp system.

Yup, any two bolt clamp should do. If you have one of the U.S.E. clamps, like on the Synapse, they have 9x7mm and 9.7x7mm oval clamps available.
