Seat tube on my Fat is 29.4mm.. have shimmed my 27.2 post, but need a clamp that will fit.

Do I just keep hunting for a 29.4 clamp (can't seem to find anyone that made them) or is there another option?

Thanks

Clamps generally only come in 3 sizes:- 28.6, 31.8, 35.0 (not 100% sure of last one). This is because the seat tubes tend to have external diameters of the 3 tube sizes in increments of 3.2mm/ 1/8th".
Thus the clamp for you is either 31.8mm if the seat tube is steel or the next one up if the tubes aluminium :wink:
