    Question about seatposts and shims

    Ebikes go fast which means shock-absorbing seatposts and *soft* saddles (e.g. Velo/CCM Mega Gel) are
    imho mandatory.

    Questions:

    1) Is is possible to machine down a shock seatpost from 27.2mm to
    2.4mm without compromising safety?

    3) Is it true that a shim made from pop can aluminum will be good enough to shim a post from 27.2mm
    to 28.6mm?

    Thanks for all replies!
