Seatpost Shim

I have to stop at least once during my uphill ride home to raise my seat. That plastic seatpost bushing just doesn't cut it.

Has anyone used an aluminum shim like this one at Gaerlan?? For $5.00 it seems hard to go wrong.

I used a shim on my twenty to fit a metric seatpost and it's been plain sailing since. I heartily recommend.
