i've never used butt balm before - probably because i've never experience discomfort or i just don't know i'm experiencing it.

is it worth investing in a jar or should i just hold off?

That saddle looks like the Arione 2 (per Google)
I think it's a tri saddle?

Looks like it may be a sticky link in the chain. Try this:


Did you recently pop a pin out there to do some chain repair/replacement?

Agreed. I don't know if you're all ballers or something, but the cheap Filzer stuff from MEC works just fine for me. Or sometimes I'll just use Body Glide. Some people just use vaseline for ultimate economy.

Makes sense. The previous owner did use the bike for Ironman.

Did some maintenance on the bike and took it out for it's first ride!


I'm not sure what it is, but the size works perfectly for me, albeit the seat height is a little low. I'm able to pedal so much more efficiently on this size "medium" and did NOT struggle on any hill climbs!

Scary part was that the front wheel is out of true haha I gotta get that serviced. Otherwise, awesome frame and bike!

i've been stalling on getting my bike fitted these past two months. i've tried and tried to replicate my last fit to no avail. can't achieve dat natural position.

oh and i'm happy to report...i've been clean of cycling purchases for over a month now. it's hard to stay off the stuff but i feel like i'm just taking this one day at a time, y'kno? rapha keeps sending me emails pushin their evils on me but i have to muster up the will power to say no!

Your front derailleur might need some fine-tuning. Do you still work at Brian Jessel BMW? If so, you can swing by my place as I have a repair stand. I don't live too far away. I can help you out with it.

Long shot here, but would you like to trade your SRAM Rival shifters for a left Red shifter and a right Apex shifter? Call me crazy, but you might be just as crazy as I am.

Maybe the hills you were climbing weren't actually steep? I looked over Argon18's geometry for a buddy of mine, their medium is definitely on the bigger side. Their small is a traditional 51-53

You scored a good deal on the bike and parts!

Maybe he busted his original right RED shifter and couldn't justify replacing just the one side with another RED?
