I have a lovely Litespeed Ti saddle that i use on my roady. unfortunately my pedal decided to detach itself from my crank today, putting me on my arse in the middle of the road, and popping one side of my saddle rail out at the back.

Solid Ti rod, any suggestions for getting it back in. I love the saddle.

virtually impossible I have found. Pulled a saddle top off the rails recently yanking on it to free a stuck seatpost. In the end I Stanley knifed a groove in one of the rail sockets so it popped in. Butchery tho'.
