Hi Berk,

I though I would try commenting on this thread before starting another if it goes missed!

I recently ordered a Lupina oval railed saddle which I have tried to assembe in the side mounted Ritchey one-bolt clamp system.

As others have previously stated the rails actually measure 7mm x 8.4mm and therefore the saddle rock in the Selle style clamp for the Ritchey one-bolt clamp.

Firstly, have others tried to mount a Berk saddle in the Ritchey one-bolt clamp or is this not recommended?

Secondly, are the rails out-of-tolerance at 8.4mm compared to 9mm?

Thirdly, if the saddle should not be used in the Ritchey one-bolt clamp, my other bike with a traditional seatpost clamp is a time trial bike.. Has anyone tried to TT on a Berk Lupina saddle??

Thank you in advance.

I have used a lupina w 7x9 in a ritchey 7x9 one nolt clamp without issues. Didn't meaure the actual rail size though.

Thanks for the reply Nifty.

And just to confirm, you didn’t observe much/any lateral displacement of the
saddle rails when you were clamping?

This suggests the under-sized rails on mime might be the issue.

I use the saddle on all my bikes including TT and find it very comfortable.
My TT bike has a Ritchey one-bolt clamp and no issues with mounting.

Has anyone tried a dila instead of a s-works power 143mm?

I have been using Berk Lupina on Ritchey 1-bolt seatpost (using 7x9mm clamp) for over a year without any problems.

Hi Jure,

For someone with sitbones of 120cm, I'm presuming I should order a 132cm seat?

Also can you confirm that the oval rail version will fit the mounting on a colnago C64 please

thanks

Some people are shorter than your seatbones. I wonder how you managed to cycle before.
