I think the Ritchey stubbies are universal fitting, meaning you buy aftermarket bits allowing the fitting of a saddle with oval rails. These items are shown on the Ritchey website.

For oval rails you need the "fizik" type clamp.

Will a Tune Cappy fit your seat post?
If setback is not needed a Tune Cappy will fit a Tune Speedneedle.

I believe you can also order it directly from Ritchey's web site. I did two years ago. I have a Selle Italia Kit Carbonio saddle w/oval rails and needed to get the other clamp. However, as a light weight alternative take a look at the Woodman. I've been pleased w/it. Weighs about 86 grams (versus the 136g for the Ritchey). I had to file the grooves a bit to fit the oval size on the Kit Carbonio but that was easily done and it works great.
