Bottle cage nut fell out of frame...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Bottle cage nut fell out of frame...

so i have a new bike. 1 month old, the top bolt holding the water bottle cage was a little loose, the bike shop tried tighten it when i had it in for my couple hundred mile tighten-up. the nut just spun in the cage with the bolt still attached, it then fell into the frame. they were able to get it out, but now i have no way of securing the top of the bottle cage in. can i epoxy this nut back in place, or should i go back to Performance where i bought the bike? I should i call fuji directly and complain, or am i SOL.


also, its a 05 fuji team, all carbon frame. it was brand new, just last years model when i bought it.

eh, since it's a 'new' bike, may be ya want a replacement. They couldn't get mine outta the frame...
I put a lil' clear sticker over over the hole and secured the bottle cage with zip ties. Works fine.
If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.
