Last sunday I had a (serious) crash where the rail of my Selle Italia Carbonio kit SLR saddle came loose. The (carbon ?) rail is now loose on the front end, the back end is still fixed. I tried to bend the saddle a bit, but was unsuccesfull to get the rail back into the saddle.

The question: has somebody experience with this issue ? and what to do about it ?

Thanks guys !

Had similar on a Ti railed one. I put the rail in a vice and used a motorbike tyre lever to flip the nose back over. It was an utter pain to do but was fine afterwards and I rode it for years afterwards.
Updated: Racing again! Thought this was unlikely! Eventually, I may even have a decent race!
Edit: 2015: darn near won the best South Island series (got second in age
-group)..woo hoo Racy Theremery is back!!

He crashed it... That's like crashing your Porsche into a tree and then trying to warranty it...
