    Nomad C Seat posts

    Hi All,

    Building up a Nomad C and am trying to keep a colour coordination theme going...


    Nomad C seat tube is stated as 30.9mm, but the seatpost I am interested in is stated a s being 30.8mm (i.e. 1/10 of a mm difference.)

    Has anyone else fitted / is a anyone else using such a set up?

    Any genuine issues (vs opinion) in doing so?


    Thanks in advance for your assistance

    sold my DH bike last weekend and was going to push through for an XX1 drivetrain upgrade on my MadC when i realized my Hope Pro2 Evo are 10mm bolt-ins and i can't find an XX1 adapter for it (X12 and QR is all i can find for the Hope hubs)... dang. and i was getting excited too.

    You can't find a seatpost in the same color in 30.9?

    What color are you trying to get?



    I wouldn't use a 30.8, I'm not sure if it would be enough but that 1/10th of a mm might give it enough room to crack the seat tube when tightening the collar enough to hold the slightly smaller post in place. I'm not an engineer so I don't know if this would happen, but it could.
