so I went to the local Specialized shop, as expected the whole cartridge needs to be replaced. They’re sort of freaking me out, said they’ll have to call tomorrow to see if they have it and the one tech said oh that’s going to be very expensive! I said it shouldn’t be over a few hundred max, I believe Specialized recommends having it replaced every 500 hours, so l’ll be hacked if that’s expected to be a $500+ repair every year.
Again, seems pretty fragile in the end.
