Hi Brian,

This is just a quick follow-up question to your answer of 9/8: when oiling the bar, 1) what oil do you use? 2) how do you do it? (just stand the bar in a corner and let it drip down into the sleeve?) 3) do you need to turn the collar as it's dripping, etc?


Hi Richie,

Since we have air conditioning we actually donít have to worry about oiling the bar ends. I use a silicone spray (since it wonít attract dust) to oil the moving parts of all of the machines and the rods on the selectorized equipment. This would be the same kind of oil youíd want to use on the bar ends. Itís often sold as garage door lube. I would spray it into the sleeve, then wipe off the excess with a towel. You donít want the oil getting onto the knurling where people grab the bar, so I wouldnít turn the bars on end.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the question,
Brian Schwab
