Not to start a flame problem or anything, but a basically new bike
with a failure of that magnitude - the shop and the manufacturer are
fortunate no one was seriously hurt... then we wouldn't be talking a
few hundred dollars, the whole thing would end up in court.

For how much I hate to mention Lawyers, if you did nothing wrong,(and
shifting is NOT doing something wrong), someone will fix your bike
free. If they don't, ask your Lawyer for an opinion on this. Usually
it will take only one call from a your Lawyer to clear this up.

Have Fun,
Nick

You ever heard the term "blood from a rock?" That's what it would be like
trying to get $$ out of your average LBS... Lawyers or no, if there ain't
money, there ain't money.

If you're only asking for your bike repaired, that shouldn't be too hard
to squeeze out of an LBS. Besides, the poorer they are the less attorney
they can afford to fight back.
