    take it to the shop you bought it from, should be covered under warranty.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Do what AEO said before what tellyho said.

    If neither pans out, I would find whatever. eBay for just a left/front shifter. Shouldn't be that hard to find. Performance difference between Tiagra and the next level up, 105, are minimal at best for the left/front.

    Any good American will watch THIS -and- WHERE WAS MY BIKE MADE?
