I bought a soloist team a couple of years ago and recently read in a thread a brass shim or such is supposed to be used with the seatpost. I removed the seatpost from the frame and cannot see a shim. ShouIs it easily visible?

I don't understand why it's needed.

Where can I buy one if needed?

Thanks in advance.

search for it on online stores. I made mine out of a soda can. It is used to even out the pressure when tightening the bolt. I think you can crack the seat tube without it

Do you really need the shim?. I have not noticed any issues with my S2 without a shim.
