If you purchased the post that uses oval rails, should be no problem. If you purchased round adapter then you might want to get a hold of the seller. They are now selling the oval adaptors separately.

(Had that problem)

Bought the post came as a round adapter and had to order the oval adaptor to work with my saddle.

Well it was fun while it lasted, but I switched back to my alloy seatpost. I rode the Hylix seatpost for about 2 months (round clamps). After a month I realized the saddle kept slipping so I constantly needed to adjust it so the saddle would not lean back too much. Then on a short after work ride I rode off a sidewalk and heard a crack. After that I could not tighten the adjuster anymore which meant it was nearly impossible to keep the saddle level. I had to ride back semi standing

Are the clamps on this particular Hylix post safe for use with typical 7x9 carbon rails?


The trek/bontrager ears are the easiest option to get hold of- use them.
I think there's 2 different versions for oval rails though.

^ was it torqued to spec? Warranty replacement/feedback?


Yes, torqued actually not near the maximum. Got a refund. This was the setback version with the aluminum chunk on the top portion glued on.

Got an FSA K force and it works fine.

Looking to get a carbon cradle like Klastor1 cradle with extentions for more rail support. I have seen them for 31.6 and 30.9 but not 27.2. has anyone seen just the cradle for sale ?
