my nice NOS red USE seatpost has arrived :D , so i've was just checking the diameter prior to getting the shim (seller told me it was 25.4), but it measures 25.1 :?
so is this actually a 25mm (current sale size) within in tolerance, and the seller was wrong - or is this actually a 25.4 within tolerance?

help please as i'm not sure what size shim to get....!!!

I've spoken to a very helpful lady at USE called Katie Thomas :D , and apparently the old rigid USE posts were only made in 25.0 and 27.2 sizes (just like nowadays, i think).

so now that question is answered I'm sure we'll sleep better at night... :lol:

(goes looking for another exciting and technically troubling quandary)
