    I ordered from Gympart once. The order was backordered although the website showed stock. I received a phone call several days later saying that the price of the backordered item had increased in...

    "OB-72" should not be in the image. It was a typo on their website that was on several other product pages as well. Ignore it. The model number is "OB-Econo".

    OB-72 was a shorty bar. I...

    That same stock photo was used for the OB-econo. ;) I think it may have been a mistake since it was used for two different products and it looks very different than the stock photo of the OB-28B and...

    The weight is without the collars. If the collars weigh around 1.25kg (2.76lb) each than the bar is lighter than a normal 44lb bar. IMO, the sticker is really the only thing separating this from...

    It's pretty similar to other inexpensive generic bars IMHO.

    The triceps bar is Ivanko. Without the sticker, I wouldn't know. If the 7 footer has a sticker also, it's probably Ivanko too. If it is an Ivanko, it's an economy bar. I haven't seen OB-CHEAP and...

    I've bought a few odds and ends from Fringe and was happy with the experience. I'm not familiar with their bumpers but I just thought I'd throw my shopping experience in here.

    Can you post a photo? I've seen one vintage York bar that had flattened sections that were hidden by the sleeves. You wouldn't notice unless you removed the sleeves. My guess is that they used...

    Are you thinking of the OB-28C? I had/sold an OB-28B but have only seen the chrome version in photos. My bar was marked "Ivanko" but I could be wrong about them all being marked. My bar also...

    The plates are O2B

    Sometimes manufacturers will use a wider diameter bar to compensate for the cheap steel. That's not always the case. Cheap steel is available in any size. But it can...

    Not an Ivanko commercial bar. I don't think it's an lvanko economy bar either. It doesn't look like anything from Ivanko that I've seen and all the Ivanko olympic bars that I've seen are marked...

    You're not going to find many benches that are 15" high. The only one that comes to mind is the PowerBlock travel bench. It might be OK for light dumbbell work but I agree with others about 11...
