What was the problem with the FSA posts?? I would think they'd be good enough to hold up to normal wear and tear, especially in a 28mm...I have used 27.2 posts for years and years even those that were ripped by lots of bikers...like the Look Ergopost 2 Ti. Many in use since '05, not a single problem. Currently using a Syntace P6 Hiflex (in a 31.6) on an EP. I would certainly try almost anything, but used seatposts would not be something I would run with...too many variables and unknowns, especially in carbon. I might try it with a Thomson Masterpiece (if one was made in a 28.0), but not carbon. I will continue to check around...
Jim...I am also unable to PM the seller here due to a lack of posts (I think I need like 6000 posts...see my rant in the weight weenies forum under topic "newbie rules." And he doesn't list an email address either. I don't like the idea of a shim and would ride my other bikes until a proper 28.0 post could be obtained. Yeah, I know, I'm really anal when it come to my equipment. Perfect is barely good enough...BTW, in the case of the Syntace post, my review is strongly positive. It's a definite winner on all fronts. My search continues...thanks for the help guys, much appreciated.
