    You'd probably get about half of what you paid for it.

    its already starting out like my madone 5.2..awsome ride..if you can keep it in any gear..front deralure sticks on big ring(no ****) take about 10 times to get it back. one again very inconsistant on shifting (sram red)..the best mech was on my bike for 4 hours! he even took it out for a ride..same noises and shifting issues with his buck 05 ass on it.he did call sram, they had him do all kinds of run thru's. sram says that T*** cut too many links out of the chain? i do understand the skewers. but, that was not our main concern at the time. i hope the chain fixes it. he said also if this does not work they r sending new parts out.. i just want the bike to shift when i want to. i dont want it to click and get stuck in gears...is this too much to ask?? don

    basically, sram thinks trek cut the chain too small. so, sram is sending a new chain to lbs. it has very inconsistant shifting, and it clicks and sticks in gears. my mech at shopcalled sram. sram told him to put things thru some kind of test (run thru he called it?)

    just want to get it fixed and get a helix os with sram.. im not sure why two bikes have the same issue. i just want a bike with no problems. i have a $90 mountain bike that shifts better.. don

    here's a way to save yourself hassle and a lot of $ - go online and buy a KMC X10SL gold chain and either install it yourself or get your LBS to do it. I'd bet I could get your drivetrain smooth as silk in 5 minutes that way.

    Maybe you should consult with another mechanic. It shouldn't be that difficult to figure out shifting issues on a high quality group.

    That is if the new chain doesn't fix the issue. Also, doesn't the shop have some chains in stock that they could just install for you instead of waiting for a warranty chain to arrive, just to see if that does fix the issue. I could understand waiting if it was a rear derailleur or shifter, but every shop should have chains in stock.

    yea, i thought about the chain, but i guess its a "special" chain.lol

    does that make sense about the chain? also said something about the spring or springs in derailure. i just hope it works.. i want to ride......don

    Has the mechanic checked the alignment of the rear derailleur hanger? If it is bent (even a little) it could cause trouble. I've been there.

    Yes, the hanger was the 1st thing he checked. Then after that he did a few adjustments. It would shift perfect he would take out out and it did it again.. I'm like here we go again.except this time I will not pay for anything. Don
