I just purchased a new Trek FX 7.6 WSD.
I can't push the left thumb shifter far enough back to change anything. I have really small hands. I run out of "stretch" on my left hand. The LBS did try changing the position of the shifter several times but nothing worked. I don't have any problems with the right hand,
The LBS is switching out the Deore to Tiagra. He is charging me $160. My friend says he is switching me to a lower quality shifter and charging me $160 to do it is ridiculous. Can anyone give me some advice? If what my friend says is true, how much should I really pay for this?
I wish I could return the bike, but apparently because of all the stuff they have already done it to make the bike work for me work I can't. It seems I am putting $$$ into that bike every other minute to make it work for me. By the way, I didn't order this bike. The LBS took the "liberty" of ordering it for me. I felt I had to buy it then.
