I'll have to try pulling that apart tomorrow. I did check the bolts and they were super tight so thought it was maybe a bearing problem or something. I'll report back if the problem continues.

I took mine back to the dealer/LBS and they made some adjustments, as well as showing me what to tweak. It's still a bit rough in some gears but much better than how it was when I got it home.
