    Fizik Saddle Compatibility with Carradice Bagman

    Is it safe to attach carradice bagman qr to Fizik's kium rails? I have a slight doubt about the compatibility due to composite nature of kium rails. I've sent an email to Fizik, but no response so far.

    I really appreciate any info about this

    "is it safe?"



    "yes! it's safe. it's very safe."

    you shouldn't have a problem with that, op. and there's also additional seatstay supports if your bag needs them.
    Yossarian: don't worry. nothing's going to happen to you that won't happen to the rest of us.

    They're not 'composite', they're an aluminum alloy. That said I'm not sure how much I'd want to hang off them w/ that amount of leverage.

    and a bunch of skateboards

    Thanks guys! Have you seen fizik kium rails break due to saddlebag support or other appendages?

    No, only because I've never seen anyone hang a huge rack/bag off a saddle.

    Well, Sheldon Brown did, but then, Brooks makes just such a bag to hand under their saddles...

    My first fizik Arrione had a rail break at 35K miles under my 180 lbs. and smooth road riding. No seat back attached.
