This may well turn into a Wanted post, but for now just looking for advice. Looking for a seatpost to fit my Fat Chance, the fantastically awkward 29.4mm seat tube diameter!

I have a 25.4 USE post but can't get a shim so wondering what options anyone can recommend. Looking for something ideally from around the period (1994) and a silver flavour....

Cheers

Strange, I have a Decathlon with that seatpost diameter and I found it easy to get a shim for a 27.2mm seatpost. I'd go that route as 25.4 post will look too skinny in the frame.

Good call, happy to shim a wider post. Just wondering what post to go for...
