Picked up a red use seat post this morning at car boot but can't find a size on it anywhere. The use sticker is missing but you can still make out where the sticker was and the letters through the anodising.

Looks to be around 25.6 or 8. Only paid a fiver with a brand new sdg aliso seat still attached

Git.

Mwahhaha.

Mines are all 25.0mm dead and utilise shimage, to get to the desired circumference!

All the best buddy.

USE posts are 25.0 and as stated you need the shim depending on what size you want. The suspension posts are 27.2 and you can get the shims from that upwards too :)

You guys are right, it is 25.0. At the moment I don't plan to USE it but am I right that danson67 makes shims of a correct length and fit for these
