Is it safe this combination?

I find the doric yokes a bit to pointy and there is little space between yokes and saddle, is it safe or does it do damage to the carbon?

Is sanding them down a option or is this to drastic....

Rather don't use it like that - it will damage the saddle.

Provide contact with saddle rails, otherwise it may damage the sidewals of the saddle.

No problem, you could really cut those ends or try to get some different yokes.
I have some that I made some time ago with ALU, I'll send you a PM :thumbup:

First i didn't feel comfertable with the dorico concorde combination but now thanks to Berk i do. No more sharp pointy bits in my fiber but smooth round ones. Oke they are twice (14G) as heavy as the original ones (7g) but they look a lot saver!

Thanks again!
