    UPDATE: I got the bike back, and it's shifting like new.

    I checked all over for any other damage, but all I could find were some scratches on the outside of the pedal on the drive side, which makes me think it did indeed take a tumble.

    All that remains are for Campy to examine the broken derailleur and give us a nice explanation of why it no longer worked despite no obvious damage, and for the guy who knocked my bike over badly enough to damage the derailleur to give me money. That latter bit's probably not going to happen, but I contacted the event's organizers, and they've asked the people manning that rest stop if anyone came forth admitting it was they who did it.

    Given that I'm a bit of a worrier, I'll probably always wonder how much of a jolt the bike got when it fell, and if any little thing at all else got damaged or dinged. Oh well.

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    We should ask Campy why it's shifting so well if the hanger is out of spec
    I work for some bike racers
    I've got some bikes, some guns,
    and a bunch of skateboards

    Well, as mentioned above, it had been incorrectly measured; it's out of spec by just 1mm, which Campy told the frame builder shouldn't cause issues.

    Latest news : Campagnolo has said they will take a look at derailleur, so the bike shop shipped it to them. Campagnolo said it might take awhile, as there are a bunch of events and conferences coming up they have to attend.
