Is anyone running an Ionic post with an Arione R1?


I'm running this setup and it works fine. But you have to get the oval caps. No creaking.

Running the Ionic 25mm set back with the selle italia slr carbonio. Seems to be working fine even though the customer service rep said it wouldn't work.

I'd like to add my experience to this thread:

I bought a new 0 setback Ionic to go on my Cervelo R5 because, like a lot of you, I thought it was a great looking post. It came with both the round and oval clamps. I found that the oval clamps did not firmly hold a 7x9mm Specialized Toupe carbon rail, so I emailed 3T's customer service about the issue. After a bit of back and forth, I received a new, tigher-fitting clamp kit for oval rails, and although it was a bit better than the first, it still was not a secure fit.

I have a Bontrager carbon-railed saddle that I'm pretty sure is 7x10 and it fits fine. I suspect that a Selle Italia carbon-railed saddle, which I think is 7x9.6 would also work with the 3T clamps, but I haven't proven that.

Anyway, my conclusion is that 7x9 doesn't work, which is a pity because it's a very slick-looking seatpost, but anything larger than that is a good bet. I'll probably be putting mine on ebay.

Chris

I bought an Enve instead and the clamping mechanism is sliding so it will accommodate a small variation in rail dimensions. The clamp is also slimmer which solves the problem with the Ionic extending beyond the shape of the saddle. It will for sure be polish with time.

Huh? The Enve ships with two sets of clamps, one for regular rails, one for carbon rails.

Yes but what I'm saying is that the carbon clamps will fit carbon rail that deviate from exactly 7x9mm, that being for example Fizik or Selle Italia rails. The standard clamps only fit 7mm round rails.

I can tell you that the Ionic oval clamp does not work effectively with Selle SMP carbon rails. There is play and the seat will slide back when doing hard seated climbs. Had to go back to steel rails which work fine.

Great seatpost for looks and love difflock as once it's set up then you never need to change it. But I think you have to accept that your going to be using steel rails....
