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

If you want to use carbon rails, you need these:

Had the same issue with my Ritchey WCS one-bolt seatpost and Fizik Antares 00 saddle. Had to order the Ritchey adapter to fit the 7x9mm carbon braided rail dimensions.

One bolt is less important than where the clamping force is - side clamp, no dice. Top clamp, works fine. (according to the guy who sold me my saddle).
