Very quick question that I know I know the answer to, but need to double check...

Yo Eddy seatpost size is 29.4mm, so is the extra 0.2mm of a 29.6mm post really going to cause an issue or not?

In short...yes.

The fats were precision reamed on a lathe, I'd be surprised if you can stick in another .2

(did not think I'd ever be saying that :oops: )
