Just yours. If it is something that happens even occasionally, I haven't seen any real evidence of it here, especially on a new bike. At least it is still under warranty.
When borrowing money from a friend, decide which you need most.

My answer comes off as a bit harsh, I was joking when I said just yours, but after I read it today it doesn't play as well, sorry about that. Hopefully someone here can give you a hand.

Squeeze the owner to take a gear set out of one of the bikes in the back room that he'd like to sell.
