"did you ask this question already elsewhere?"
no, actually. i posted simultaneous to someone else who had a similar issue. sorry about the confusion.
regarding the drive train: shimano 105 double crank; tiagra derraileurs front and back; tiagra cassette.
regarding skipping links or cogs: both, actually. it is reluctant to shift, and it skips in both small and large increments. i think the chain is toast, not because of my leg strength, but because it was a cheapo to begin with. i've already had to have the back wheel rebuilt with name-brand spokes (curing chronic misalignment). now i've got to upgrade the chain.
that's what i get for shopping for low prices, i guess. i bought a jamis nova for cheap. should have known better.
