    Crank Brothers Joplin - Outer Rail Clamp

    Just bought a Fizik Gobi XM Saddle which has Braided Carbon Rails (7x9mm) - nice looking seat.

    The issue I have is that the Crank Brother Joplin Outer Rail Clamps clamp on 'sideways' rather than top to bottom like a normal seat post clamp.

    The Fizik Gobi XM Saddle rails are 9mm wide and do not fit the Joplin Outer Rail Clamp.

    Does anyone know if you can get a 'larger' or heavy duty set of Outer Rail Clamps? Heavy Duty ones are mentioned in this forum but don't know where to get them?

    No solution from Crank Brothers

    Got the following message from CB today:

    "JC has informed me that the Joplin does not fit the Gobi with the Carbon rails due to the shape (oval)…. L

    Crank Brothers"

    Looks like the Braided Carbon Rails DO NOT fit the Joplin.

    Fizik Gobi XM with and without Carbon Braided Rails

    L1010408.jpgFYI - attached are some photos if anyone is interested in the problem. Both seats are new Fizik Gobi XM Saddles - the one on on the left has a standard titanium rail and the one on the right has a braided carbon rail which is 9mm.
