Sorry for another question. I have two seatpost and one is old FSA SLK carbon seatpost (as attached).
Just wonder this seatpost can have carbon rail. Also tried to search all over but couldn't find clear answer yet. Only finding was ; seat clamp fixed from up and down can have carbon rail while from left and right side can't.
The thing is, as you know well, carbon rail is not round but oval and this Skylite VT saddle is 9.7 x 7 mm so can't be so sure if I can install this saddle to that seat clamp with one single bolt, pressing from up and down.
