That was pretty quick turnaround!

Did the tech have any notes or comments?

Give us a report when you ride it. I am hoping this works out well for you so you can finally be happy.

Back to normal! It was definitely the crank assy. (.019 TIR) $2,100 total. Like this tech. He's 7' tall, has hands the size of my head and rattles off specs like a bee on honey.

That's AWESOME! I think I'd be sending a strongly worded letter with documentation to MoCo, seeking reparations. Not that it will do any good, but I'd feel better getting it out. I really respect the follow-thru you put into this problem. I know it was frustrating and expensive. I wish it wasn't, but nothing can change that.

Kudos!
