I have two questions in one: :) The first would be what direction does this arrow on the seatpost's top clamp indicate? Is it towards the front or rear of the bike?

Second would be what should I do if my saddle rails are too far apart to fit the clamp?

    the arrow points forward & i'm not convinced by that photo that clamp is too narrow.

  • Does the top clamp fit over the rails?

  • Looks like you can just bend the saddle rails to fit Commented Aug 19, 2020 at 19:47

Thank you. I actually just screwed the clamps in and it seems to work pretty well.

None of them (top and bottom seemed to fit.
