I have a Ritchey Superlogic Carbon 1-bolt Seatpost. I'm considering purchasing a MCFK Carbon Saddle. The MCFK's rails are 7x9mm, ovalized. However, on Ritchey's site they list two adaptor sizes, 8x8.5 and 7x9.6. Does anyone know whether I could shim the rails somehow and use the 7x9.6, or any viable solution?

Best.

The way the clamp works, I would expect the 7x9.6 to work fine.

...If not some braided tape can add a little to the diameter

...7 mm is the width and 9.6 is the height...the width is the most important factor to be concerned about. You will be fine with a 7x9mm saddle rail.

I have used the superlogic seatpost with romin pro saddle (also 7x9 carbon rails) with zero problems, of course with the adapter. I wrote: "used" because I need a zero setback post which I now use
