    I picked up a nice frame recently and need to find a seatpost, or a shim. All the posts I have are
    27.2 and this frame is much larger diameter.

    It is a Giant Cypress LX - unsure of year. If anyone has one of these, please either measure the
    seatpost, or if you can remove it, it should be marked. Is there a shim used here? The Giant web
    site lists seat posts as 27.2, so Im thinking maybe there is a normal shim from the factory.

    Anyone got one of these they can help with?

    Thanks

    As someone who has assembled near a hundred of there Cypresses this summer, I can tell you that
    quality control does not extend to seat posts. At least once a week we'd get one that had a
    unambiguously mismatched seatpost boxed with it. Go to the seatpost rack of your LBS and have them
    do head-scratching.
