Thanks guys , really appreciate your help.. :)

The shim has a two slots cut into the shim , so I assume it is the original shim, which should mean that the 26.4 I have should fit, I can only think that the I will need to clamp the seatpost binder clamp up more than I had expected.. :?

I will re-try this later and report back.. :)

Cheers once again. appreciated.. :)

Oh! and then the next question is (if this is the right size) where can I get a 26.4 decent post from in black :? :lol: :lol:

You could swap the shim like I did, opens up a whole load more potential

Yes I am thinking that, but would need to confirm the actual frame dia is 30.0 or indeed 29.6.. ,

I'll see if I can measure the dia with a steel rule as I dont have a set of vernier calipers .. :(

Currently between Tatooine and about six parsecs from Hoth :lol: :lol: , whilst calling it at Abregado-rae I managed to pick up a 30mm shim to 27.2 so hopefully I'll be sorted.. ;)

My (Orange) seat post doesn't slip. However my (Orange) seat clamp does, although less so after special insertion of "Old Speckled Hen" shimming material :D

The F7s are fairly short though (see example below) - certainly shorter than RC35s.
