can you guys demystify the seatpost phenomenon?

I have an 06 Fuji hybrid, and had the seat+seatpost stolen (i had replaced the QR with a bolt).

According to the Fuji website, the seatpost clamp is 31.8mm, but I'm not sure that's what the diameter of the seatpost itself should be.

I have a 27.2 post here, I'm just trying to figure out what size shim I should get to make it fit.

31.8 = the outside diameter of the seat tube

27.2 = the outside diameter of the seat post (a hair smaller than the inside diameter of the seat tube)

You probably won't need a shim.
