Any information if the tune speedneedle fits a syntace P6 carbon seatpost?

I have purchased a red spedneedle that looks beautiful an weighs in at 94 grams. I am still struggling with the 34,9mm seatpost to select.

Thanks

My P6 is pretty darn similar to a Thomson in terms of the seat clamp, so I think you'd be safe.

It should work just fine with the KCNC post. I have used it with a Syncros post and a Easton EC70, which has a clamp much like the KCNC SC Pro Lite.

I recommend using the KCNC Ti Pro Lite, best bang for the buck seat post. Works fine with the Speedneedle, really bites down good on those fat rails.

FYI, currently Tune is not exporting the Speedneedle to the US. I stopped using mine cause it gave me some nerve damage. After a few months of use I had numbness and pain in one leg, if I replaced the seat the issue would go away after several weeks. I am using the Selle Italia TT Flight, I gained 67 grams but I least I can ride without the nerve issues. (166 g vs 99 g)

Peace.

Not a question about speedneedle, but the concorde saddle also made by tune. Will it fit the ritchey carbon wcs 2-bolt?

I have Speedneedle on my Ritchey WCS carbon 2-bolt seatpost, and works out great.

On my roadbike, the original seatpost was Specialized carbon which has similiar 1-bolt design as Ritchey 1 bolt seatposts. Problem was that the seatpost only accepted round rails, and Speedneedle has oval rails. So if I would've tried to put the speedneedle on 1-bolt seatpost, I would've ruined those so precious carbon rails.

I have the speedneedle and 2 wcs posts. So if I was interested, I would easily find that out ;) What I was wondering about was if the tune concorde / becker concorde /carbon-ti concorde /frm blackhole will fit the ritchey wcs 2bolt post.

Guys I just installed the Speedneedle on the starkes stuck and the seatpost marked the carbon rails of the speedneedle, is this regular? :?:

I don't think so because I can even see some of the YELLOW fibers coming out of the rails!!! I'm pretty scaried about this.

Here's the pic after the first real ride.

There are two marks where the rails are sitting in this picture (after today's rides) and two marks that were done when I first installed the saddle and tested it on the block around the bikeshop. I've used the torque wrench on both instalations.


THANK YOU GUYS!
