My seatpost screw "insert" has pulled out halfway and is now loose on 2011 S-Works SHIV; does this go back through local bike shop? Is it a long repair turnaround (will I be without my bike for several weeks)?
Yep....LBS. Some have had a quick turn around, others have taken longer. Specialized should have a fix for your LBS by now so they do not have to send your frame in. Specialized was very helpful when this happened to me.....twice. There is actually a specific thread on this issue if you care to search for it. I think its called Seat Post Fail...or something like that.
It will help cover part of the cost of the aerobar extensions i'm going to have to buy, since my Zipp's no longer work.
On a side note, the CeeGee aero bar pads are a huge upgrade over the specialized aero bar pads, about the sane price to.
For timetrial i would mybe not do it as there maybe no fluid needed... But in Time Trials you anyway may not be allowed to participate with an Non-UCI frame
But good news as i also use the fuelcell on small and standard distances. Speci says that it has no negative impact, just the additional weight of your stuff you put into... I like it very much even if I carried just two gels in it today in addition to the repair set.
But anyway its easy removed...
Only damage is brake lever which I'll replace, and what looks like a superficial (or not?) quarter-sized scrape on the fork, all the way to the resin but no visible fibres sticking out. It has a couple of deeper gouges/pits. I'd rather replace the fork just to be safe.
My LBS says they can't get that fork from Specialized. Is that right? I'd be fine with a plain gloss black fork (Really not interested in painting CF on my own) but they could not find that either. Only forks they could find were blue white and I think matte black. So how do I replace this?
Here's a picture:
