I have 1 of 3 options. I can keep trying to find a Syncros, I can use a shim (which I have already bought), or I can use the Race Face post I just got in 30.4. I could go with a RF theme! But I still need the 2 cable stops replaced! I got the fork (after 4 months of looking). I just need to put it together!

I would say don't use a shim, it's much better the seatpost is supported all the way down into the seat tube.

My thoughts exactly. I was starting to lose hope and also the inspiration to build the Experience until I found the RF seatpost (just 2 weeks ago) and about a month ago the Tange Big Fork! Now I just have to find someone to custom fab me the cable stops!
