If it says 26.2 it is 26.2. Nothing else will fit. Your seat tube is not like a pair of sweatpants. You can't put a skinnier post and and pull the string and bunch it up around the post.

I've never used one of those but I don't see why it shouldn't work.

Shims work fine.

I use one for a 25.4-26.8 on the dmr. It's a shim, it does it's job acceptably.
