seat rails are pretty much standard if not they are easy to bend. It would be the seatpost that doesn't fit if anything so to answer your question yes it will fit. Just don't get a pivotal seat Madder

yup should work with ur post only seats with out rails wont but double cheack the rail size to make sure u get a tight fit

Most seatposts will work if its 6-7mm rails but if its 8mm you will prob have to get a compatible seatpost too...

duno if any of you have heard the bmx term: 'slammed seat' but im running that.

its basicly no padding at all in your seat, seat put down all the way to the frame and NO RAILS!! ive put 2 small wholes in my seat and bolted it straight on to the post, no rails, and clampy thingys involved. its not comfortable but its to keep the seat low and out of the way.

to use a pivitol seat you would need a pivitol post...you can not use a seat with rails on a pivitol post or the opposite of that a pivitol seat on a post made for a traditional saddle

The only way you'd have to grind the post down is if you're running the original style that tapers near the top and you want to slam it. Depending on how high you run your seat you'd be a lot better off getting the new style Stump posts and a shim.

P.S. Pivotal seats only work with Pivotal posts.

yes i knew about pivital seat and post

my friend says i should buy his seat and post then buy a shim thingy..

I have a BMX sized pivotal post and seat with a shim, on my MOB. I have a long post so I can raise it for the 8 mile ride back and forth to work, and still slam it for jumping. The long Macneal post is also pretty lightweight for how long it is.

yes will be fine, unless you buy one of those rail less seats
