    25.4 Titanium Seatpost

    I'm looking for a seatpost to last through a few bikes. 26.8 in titanium is easy, but finding a shim to 30.9 is tough.

    I'd rather find a 25.4 seatpost and go with the more common shim sizes.

    Anyone see any 25.4 x 350mm ti seatposts?

    Why not just get a 30.9 and forget about shimming?
    Moots, Dean, KCNC, or some custom shops.

    Because I may upgrade my seatpost on my current 26.8 frame, and it may be months or a year before I upgrade the frame to one with a 30.9 seatpost.

    I'm sure Erickson would build you one.
