If I interpret your photo correctly, I see that seat rail mismatch often with regular seatposts. You have to spread the seat rails apart. I certainly iunderstand any reluctance to do so, since you don't want to damage your Carbo seat post.

Try the seat on another bike to spread the rails. Then move it back.

Thanks Harry. I ended up using a small tabletop vise that allowed me to slip the seat rails over the outside of the jaws and then gradually open the jaws to spread the rails apart.

Hey there! Wondering if you found a solution to this problem yet?
Hi Mitch, I too bought an X Carbo bike but waited 8 months for the delivery. I seems I am having a similar problem with the bike working intermittently. It is a very slow and frustrating process sealing with the company for a fix. Did you ever get to the bottom of the problem and can you please. share.
