Forgive me if this has been answered before. This is my first post and I registered only after failing to find my answer via Search.
I bought a Raleigh R-700 in mid-97. I rode it a lot the first few years, then moved with a new job in 2000. The bike hung in the garage since the move, but I wanted to start riding it again. When I took it in for servicing, the tech noticed a crack in the frame. Since I was the original owner and had the original receipt, Raleigh was obligated to replace the frame. I didn’t notice until a week later that the component set was Shimano 600. I SWEAR I had Shimano Ultegra on the bike before. I took it back to the Raleigh dealer and he said he swapped the parts directly over to the new frame.
Am I losing my memory, or did the dealer “accidentally” pick up the wrong component set and put into the new frame? And even if the components did not come off the original bike, are the component sets close enough in quality, durability, etc., that I shouldn’t worry about it? Thanks.
