Either 25.4mm or (ideally)26.6mm x 330 or 400mm.

Black preferably, but I'd consider silver.

Also 25.4mm - 26.6mm shim.

That'll be a layback post though, won't it ? It's really Thomson that I was after, but thanks anyway 8) .

No worries, only mentioned it on the off-chance the shim was a last resort :wink: not that there's anything wrong with shimming :lol:

STW often seems swamped with Thomson stuff...

Hope Wiggle was helpful :)

Wiggle have one only Cane Creek 25.4-26.6mm shim and Thomson Elite posts in 25.4 x 330mm. They don't have 26.6mm posts, unfortunately.
This would work out marginally cheaper than getting a 26.6mm post from CRC and at least I could always shim the post to some size other than 26.6mm if I ever wanted to in future.

Nice 26.6mm posts are, as you know, like hen's teeth.... :roll:
