I needed an odd size USE shim also so had to contact the USA distributor who gladly sold one to me. I don['t have their email anymore but check the main USE website to contact the distributor. Also - this is a light solution versus using an oversize seatpost.


Wrong thread.

Nice post. Take pics of the head.

they say the campagnolo record seatpost are weight limited also to 180lbs, i ride it all the time, so i guess this one should work fine for me.

here is another pic, he states that it is only 170lb limit. getting too close for comfort :roll: other than that nice post. for all those which the weight limit does not apply; this is a cheaper alternative to the Schmolke TLO 84g seatpost.
