    seatpost 26.6,shims? other options

    So I'm converting my old rigid bike to a SS. Today's problem is with the seatpost. I've been trying to find a replacement but posts in size 26.6mm are hard to come by. Anyone know of a shim kit or any other options? Maybe I can squeeze in a 26.8mm post?
    thanks

    USE Alien

    In the 25.0 diameter, shimmed to 26.6 is what I finally settled on. It's light, looks snazzy and works great on my Kona. Plus you can get it in a super-long 420mm.

    I had the same issue on a commuter bike I just built up. Nashbar has their generic ATB posts in 26.6 for $9.95. I was building on the cheap, so that's what I bought. If you want something nicer, it looks like Thomson makes posts in that diameter as well.
