The T-bar itself just bolts to the bottom of the saddle, I do not believe the seatpost will make a difference. I think that the only requirement is that the saddle has a 2009 KH base... I could be totally wrong, as my T-bar is not here yet.

This is right. 2009+ Nimbus saddles also use the KH base and are compatible with the T-bar. Look at the underside of your saddle. If it has a KH signature logo molded into the plastic and the bumpers are held on with allen bolts you should be set.

Right, I installed a T-bar on my Nimbus new flat saddle

Install the stiffener plate between the saddle and teh seat and you'll get more nose up seat angle out of that fixed post.

There's a thread on T Bar set ups under custom grab handles in the review section

I apoligize in advance for the bad picture.

It is my birthday and I recieved a KH T-bar. I set it up, but I have a few questions as to whether I set it up correctly:

1. The directions say "the saddle handle goes under the reinforcement." I am somewhat confused on how to interpret this, because this can be seen as two different things, depending on how the saddle is oriented when the T-bar is being installed.

2. When I attached the L-brackets, the bow out slightly, is this normal?

As it stands, from the bottom up, I have the bolt head, the washer, the L-bracket, the reinforcement plate, the saddle handle, then the saddle base. Is this correct?

Here is a photo:

I recently modified my KH T-handle to fit my SW CF base, which were made to the Miyata bolt patterns. Easy fix to fit the base, by drilling a couple of new holes in the brackets where they bolt down to the front underside of the base. Was able to retain my DG as well which I really like!

The problem I was having, dating back to when the T handle was on my standard plastic KH seatbase (with the reinforcement plate that comes with the t handle), was that the two bolts that attach the handle to the brackets can only be tightened so much. So during an upward pull while climbing, hopping, etc., it would sometimes move up.

So I thought of a a very easy, quick fix, to make it virtually impossible for the handle to shift from whatever position you have it at. I simply drilled a hole through the two brackets with the handle installed and pre-positioned, and added a *third* bolt to lock it into place. And since I never change the angle, I won't need to remove it.

That's not a flat saddle

This a flat saddle.

I'm using this KH T-bar/NNC Flatfish setup for my 160km Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge on Saturday.
