    Seatpost issues...

    So...I took the 27.2 Tompson off my Komodo and put the GD on. I was gonna put the Tompson on the Crapper, but the one on the Crapper right now is 26.8. Where can I find a shim to make the Tompson fit the Crapper?









    Man, I was so pissed when I found out it didn't fit! The OD of the seat tube is 30.0 on both bikes. The Easton wall tubing is just a bit thinner on the seat tube on the new Komodo. Weird.

    I guess I'll just have a Thomson "laying around". That sux b/c it was a Christmas gift 2yrs ago from Wifey. GD is still shredding!

    By my calculations, "the Crapper" will be 11.24159% less safe than it is right now.

    That results in a negative number.
