Default seatpost blues

i have a purple 27.9 mm seatpost. was there some kind of seatpost shim that would add the extra space to fit my yo eddy tube?? Don't want to have to tape it up all ghetto like!!!

thanks for any help on this one.

Default they got shims!

Yo, Talk to your local bike shop, there are shims that are made in "C" shape, some have a top lip turned down so they don't slip into seatpost tube of the frame. People use 'um all the time for suspension seat post, not the best, but better than spend'n $40+ Bucks... Z
