Default seatpost blues

30.4 is a weird size, are you sure it's not 30.0 or 30.8 (two standard
sizes). You can cause your frame to split if you land on the seat hard and
the seat is extended past the maximum point. Most of the good seatposts
come in all the standard sizes. Thomson is one of the best.
www.lhthomson.com , they're light and strong.

OK, so I am riding with my seatpost extended 1/4" past the max
insertion marker...

what's going to happen?

I have a weird size seatpost (30.4mm) on a cro-moly Stumpjumper. The
best path I see is to get a longer seatpost in a 27.2mm size and use a
seatpost shim to make up the difference.

Any comments on seatpost shims (adaptors)?

thanks,

- glenn
