If you already got ur free brifter... I wouldn't bother then. You can maybe ask them how much they want to sell you that other brifter for, but I'd perhaps ask them to put full red on it. It seems silly that they would want to keep one brifter if they're going to warranty replace the broken one. I'd (if I was working in the shop) have sent them back as a set and given you the set of red. Why? Because it's going to be a PITA to ever try and get one brifter, and the shop could've sent the force stuff back as a set and sram wouldn't care. So I might write them and just mention that situation and that now ur bike is silly, but I'd maybe inquire at the shop level first?

I mean. Brifters are sold as a set. You couldn't even buy ONE from Sram if you wanted, you'd have to goto a dealer and convince them. Be sure that you have the shops info and the dates. Call/write them and just be a roadie. Say something like you bought a set, and it malfunctioned, but you'd either like a matching force set, or the other red brifter to go with the one you have. I dunno... whine but be smart. I'd expect to get another brifter. Then you can sell your old brifter to some hipster on ebay looking for a front brake lever for his sweet fixay.

omg. punch me in the face. please.

Tha deets are here. I took 41st overall... I got into a bad position on the last lap, but was 8seconds behind the champ!! There wash a crash right next to me and  almost took me out, then the pack took off. I had to do some serious work b/c (about two laps of catch up). Here are the results
