new bike problems

hey i just bought an 08 Dk six pack last night...this morning i was riding to work and my left crank/pedal kept sticking. it wouldnt spin like it was suppose to. the pedal would just lock up and made it a ***** to ride. it sounds like something is wrong at the crank/pedal joist. is this any easy fix? or should i take it to the shop? anyone else have this problem...thanks.

Sounds like the Bolt could be bent or threaded wrong, could be something else but you can easily remove it and inspect for damage(bent bolts or pedal, debris, or stripped or deformed threads) and if you don't see any reassemble being sure to thread the bolt correctly, its so easy a monkey could do it but if you just bought the bike from a shop take it back and they will most likely check it out for free, if they don't you need to find a new bike shop.
