15/16" seatpost = 23.81 mm
I purchased a low end canadian mid-late 1980's Peugeot road bike last weekend in the local salvation army. Seemed like a good deal for US$5.30. The frame appears to be a good fit.
The only issue that I have is this: the seatpost came without a clamp (the old pipe type...). It's probably a bit too short for me anyhow. I was hoping to replace it with one of higher quality. The diameter is 15/16" (or 23.81 mm). I'm pretty certain that I can find a source for the clamp (7/8" diameter), but I'd like a longer, higher quality post.
Is my only option to shim a (probably lower quality) 7/8" seatpost?
