28.4 mm seatpost - 27.2/28.4 seatpost shim(3 posts)

28.4 mm seatpost - 27.2/28.4 seatpost shimcabinfever

I'm looking for a solution to fit my 28.4 mm seattube on my 1999 Fuji Team. I'd like a Thomson or Syncros style post, and would like to transfer it to a new bike if/when I get one. I think I want a 27.2 mm Thomson Elite, but can't find a domestic US bike shop who has a 27.2/28.4 seatpost shim available. Anyone know of one out there?

Try calling laBicicletta 1 800 489 8430
I bought a USE shim from them. The USE shims come in 2 base (inner) sizes - 25.0 & 27.2 - with many outer sizes available.
How about from a suspension post company?cory

it's been awhile, but when I bought a Thudbuster suspension post for my mountain bike, they only came in two sizes, one of which was 27.2. The catalog listed at least a dozen shims up to, I think, 31.6. Might see if your bike shop can order one from Cane Creek.
