Shim shimmeny

Hello all. I'm looking to use an adjustable ahead stem as a tandem stoker stem but require a shim to make it fit the 27.2 seatpost. Any ideas on the shim size I need? Really struggling to get my head around it! :shock:

The Netherlands have the best system I have used. Each junction has a number and you simply note down which junction you go to next. E.g. 45,26,47,57,75 etc. You can see an example here to the right of the screen http://en.nederlandfietsland.nl/en/cycle-maps-and-guides Simple, easy and means you can...

Re: Would you have said something?

Turning it more into a request than a finger pointing exercise often helps. 'Hello there, can I just have a quick word.
