Sleeve in seatpost clamp neccesary

Postby eeksll » Sun Oct 08, 2017 11:38 pm

what does this sleeve do? do I need it? I put a old quick release seat clamp on another bike and this piece is missing, can I put something else there if its required?

That's your clamping surface! Without that steel shim, you'll have two comparitively soft aluminium surfaces rubbing against each other, which will wear the clamp out much faster.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.
