Is it wrong to put a gold USE seatpost (shimmed) in a Klein frame?

Just thinking of the Rascal build thats staring at me.

It has a little bit of an extended seat collar but should be ok with a long shim no?

Jez, I'm not (for once) taking the p*ss here but if it was going to get used hard offroad I wouldn't do it. But then I'm probably a lot heavier than you too!

for garage queen would be fine, for actual use would be lethal. I cracked a seat tower on a klein fervor last jan in Oz with the correct size seatpost & 10cm of post buried below the toptube/extended seat tower & it still cracked..

Visually: a super fat seat tube with a equally super skinny post?
