Slippery anodizing

I am using this on my NS Majesty frame (cromo dirt jumper), which takes a 27.2 seatpost,to enable me to use my 25.4 Kalloy Uno post. I have had to use, in my opinion, excessive force on my quick release to get my post tight, and even still it slips, whereas when I use my 27.2 Kalloy post (a different one) slippage is not a problem.

I just paid $10 to have this shim bead blasted, and voila! problem solved. 2 stars, because for this shim to work properly it actually cost me over $20.

By the way, my shim (27.2 to 25.4) is 17 grams.



Pros: Proper sizing and tolerances.

Cons: Anodizing is slippery.

Would Buy Again: No
Would Recommend: No

Great tolerances and difficult to remove the shim from the frame when the time comes. Have it well greased to limit the creaking. It is a great interim solution until you get the correct diameter post or a way to soften the ride by using a narrower post.

Cane Creek Seatpost Shim

As advertised. Works well. I think it is the best of the shims on the market--it appears to be better machined, labeled, and finished then some of the other less expensive alternatives. I bought mine to accomodate a 27.2mm height adjustable seatpost into a 28.6mm seattube equiped frame.

Pros: Quality and fit.

Allowed me to use a standard and easily accessible 27.2 seatpost on my old Ibis. Cane Creek produces some quality parts, this is no exception. Stamped sizes helps in future reference and the top lip prevents is from slipping into the seattube - nice touches.

Great probelm solver

I wanted the option of using a bmx seat/post combo on my dirt jumper and this shim allowed me to do just that. Only a few inches of the seat post are in the seat post tube and this hasn't slipped since I set it up months ago.
In the long run this saved me money, weight, and gave me a huge variey of seats to choose from.

So much better than a pop can

Yes, you can try to fab your own shim out of junk in the garage, but this is so much easier to use. Whenever I buy some oddball 31.8 (or whatever) frame, I just buy a shim to fit, and use one of my stock of 27.2 seatposts. It's cheaper and more flexible this way.

Pros: Let's you run a common size seatpost in an oddball frame, cheaper than buying a new post

My trick with these is to easily mount Xtracycle "stoker" bars using a regular 1 1/8" stem. Use a shim that's the interior diameter of your seatpost, and 1 1/8" exterior diameter (28.6 mm). Just trim it to the stack height of the stem, slip it over your seatpost, and the stem will fit perfectly!

Hey It Works - What More Can You Ask

I've always been a bit leery of shims. I was always afraid that they would slip and just be a mess. I splurged on a Ti Seat post last year and it didn't fit my frame, thus requiring a shim. After greasing everything up and snugging down, I can say it is trouble free for for year. It works.
