I was doing a quick visual inspection of the Sport 1000 Biposto yesterday, when I noticed the lower part of the chain guide hanging down under the swinging arm. It must have come loose on my short run last weekend, and the lower chain run had given the plastic guide a bit of a "chewing". Interestingly, the lower attachment screw had not come loose: the whole hexagonal metal sleeve (into which the screw fits) had fallen out of its hole in the bottom part of the swinging arm. I asume that this sleeve is an interference press-fit into the swinging arm, with the "interference" aspect having gone bye-bye in my bike's case: the sleeve can now be pushed in or pulled out with ease. I hope that there is an easy cure for resecuring the sleeve tightly.

Anybody else encountered a similar problem? I could not discover a similar case using the search function.
