Does anyone know the correct size seatpost for this? I thought the origional one was in it which was 31.6 but a replacement (origional too short) has a lot of movement in there.

Thanks.

I measured the brand new one and it's 31.5mm in reality.
I tried a 30.9 with the correct shim and there's no movement at all.
I'll dig out the origional one at work later and see what it's like.
Thanks.
