Bought wrong size clamp on derailleur, do they make adapters
i have a shimano ultegra clamp on derailleur, size is 31.6 but it turns out I need the 28.4. Do I have to buy a new one or can I find some kind of adapter?
Wrap your seattube in friction tape (cotton cloth with a friction coating, it's cheap at your local hardware store) until your calipers measure 31.6.
There are adapters available.

This is indeed the case. Just go buy a new $5 clamp in the size you need.
