Giant NRS seat post

The giant web page recomends a 27.2 seat post. I have one in there but I really have to crank the colar down to hold it in, It seems like it should take a bigger seat post to fit right. Anyone have a bigger seat post in one of these frames? and how big is it? 30.9? is there anything in between?

Many Giant bikes are spec'd to use a 27.2 seatpost with a 27.2-30.8 seatpost shim. You can buy them online or at your local Giant dealer. I have heard of some people who run a 30.9 seatpost without any trouble, but I like to stick with what the manufacturer says.

yea I just dont like the idea of using a shim, seems like a cop out. Like perhaps they designed the bike for 30.9, but got a good deal on a bunch of 27.2 so they got some shims instead of doing it right. Ill see if the bike shop will try to stuff a 30.9 into it and see if it will fit for me.
