My Santana Sovereign originally came with a Tamer telescoping seatpost with elastomers. After a few years my stoker (wife) complained it was not working anymore. So I replaced it with a Rockshox elastomer seatpost. That was over 5 years ago and again she is now saying it doesn't work anymore. I was looking at the Tamer Pivot Plus at A.E. Bike for $107. Has anybody used this and found it be better than telescoping seatposts? Are there any other posts worth considering? I think I used a shim on the Rockshox to adapt it to the Santana 29.8mm seat tube. I can buy a Tamer 29.8mm seatpost but for a lot more money than the 27.2, any reason why I would not want to use the shim and save a bundle of money?
