Does anyone here use a shim on a CR1 seatube? Plan to use a USE Alien seatpost but not sure whether is it recommended?

It would be a pain to remove if it got stuck.

Pull your post out and clean it occassionally to prevent your post getting stuck.

Get a 31.6 Alien or take something else, a shim (if so it has to be at least 120 mm long) will damage the frame.

You will ruin the frame and it will not be able to be warrentied.

thanks.just got myself a Thomson seatpost.The reason why i ask is because the bicycle shop owner "claim" that shim can be used on the frame but i know it is untrue.will post a picture once complete.just 1 more day to go. :-)
