Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I bought this for my Selle Italia Max Flite saddle, which has over size seat rails. Selle Italia are fussy about what they recommend for cradling their seat rails. The Cyrano does a good job in that regard. Very well made and looks good. Yes the thumb wheel angle adjuster does work, but the lock bolt needs to be undone for it to work. When you tighten the lock bolt, the seat angle changes as some of the slack is taken up. Therefore, need to allow for that, which is a bit hit and miss. With a bit of patience and fiddling, you can get the seat angle just where you want it. After a couple of rides the seat post made a nasty cracking sound. Nothing was loose or broken. A THIN smear of spray lithium grease between the seat post and the rail clamp fixed that. No problems since. The fiddliness of getting the seat angle just right might suggest a one star deduction, but that would be a bit churlish. 5 stars then.
