Will the Tune speedneedle work with an Extralite 'The Post UL' seatpost?
I've just discovered the Tune seat won't work with my USE post :? :(

Should work fine.

AFAIK the USE posts are the only ones who can't handle the Speedneedle rails.
That's why USE offers a replacement clamp for seat rails >7 mm on request:

Cheers guys.
I'm going to try and get hold of the larger clamp from USE.

The largest clamp size that USE offers is 8mm my Tune saddle is 10mm!
Any suggestions on a light weight post in size 31.6mm x 350mm to suit this saddle?
I'm guessing maybe Extralite or Tune?

It's a pity.
Someone managed to install the SpeedNeedle on an Alien Carbon, so I thought the larger clamps would fit on tune saddles:

Thats what I thought but my saddle has an additional layer of kevlar/carbon on the rail which increases the width.
See attached link for a pic.

Actually you can modify the clamp by yourself!
I have the same problem!
I didn't want to do anything on my own, so I think I will buy other post!

A Tune seat post will be compatible I guess :lol:

The Tune seatpost will indeed work with the Tune saddle (as you would expect...) -- and I happen to have one for sale! Specs:
* 31.6mm diameter
* 340mm length (Tune's seatposts come in either a 340mm or a 420mm length)
* Silver
* Used but in like-new condition (9.5/10)
* 195g real weight

I'm asking $68 for it (plus shipping). Let me know if you're interested.
