Hello people, does anyone know if a deda supperleggro carbon seatpost is compatible with a specialized romin pro saddle?

    Universal fit seatpost + universal fit saddle - is there any reason why you think it might not fit?
  • Mentions something about 7x9mm carbon rails and only using specific specialized seat posts. Not sure if this is a cleaver marketing ploy.

    It is - if they find out you've disobeyed their instructions they come after you with a small axe. :D

    To be fair, some seatpost use a side clamping mechanism, which means you need a specific size clamp for round or oval-shaped saddle rails. A lot of Ritchey seatposts use this type of method.

    Not a marketing ploy at all. Get your info right if you're gonna post...
    The spesh pro saddles use a 7*9 mm rail. This MUST be used in conjunction with a seatpost which clamps vertically not horizontal, unless a conversion kit matching the seatpost is used. Else you will crack the rails.

    The Superleggero does clamp vertically.
