    Will a standard Tarmac carbon seatpost fit a 9mm rail?

    I have a '12 Tarmac with their "comp carbon seat post". It came with a stock Romin saddle that I'd like to upgrade to their Romin Evo Pro. The only thing is that it has oversized 9mm carbon rails. I've searched high and low and cant find if my current post will fit this seat or not. Any help would be appreciated!

    Looks like you've already submitted a question to Spec's Masterlink, so I suggest waiting for their response.

    That said, it's my guess that your post won't accommodate the 7x9 rail clamps needed for saddles equipped with CF rails.

    Yeah...I saw those but like you said, they only fit the Pave post. Also, like you noted, I posted the ? on their site, I was just hoping someone here had already ran into that issue...

    Yes, guessing, I think you'll need a different post.

    The issue has come up here before, so another member may be able to help. You could try an advanced search in this forum.

    Spec's pretty good about answering, though. I doubt you'll have to wait long...
