Uh oh! Saddle rails too narrow.

I was all excited to mount my new Terry saddle, only to discover that it doesn't fit. The original saddle on the bike was a Specialized Toupe. Is there any way out of this jam?

It almost looks like you may be able to bend the rails with a little persausion you could get the gap to fit but I've never done that to a saddle so I only reccommend that if you take the liablility ;)

Otherwise I believe the safe thing to do is take back the saddle, or bike and saddle or seatpost and saddle to where you bought it, if purchased online then to the lbs. and don't forget your reciept should you need to do a return.

Absolutely take it back. Saddles and posts are a standard width. They should fit together.

UH OH, is right, because this is not a high-IQ puzzle ...

SET the junction of the REAR portion of the rails (the NON-horizontal portion) in the front of the cradle AND slide the saddle into the cradle (you may need to pivot the rails into the 'slot') ... adjust the fore-aft postion & angle ...tighten.
