    Something like that might be just the ticket. They used similar in India when I was traveling there, and they made the 125 degree heat (pre-monsoon) actually bearable in a windowless room.

    Quick search turned up a few that say they'll fit an olympic style bench. You should make sure, but I'm assuming that means the space between sleeves is the same as for a normal 7' bar....

    A couple black pipes (or two bars if you have them) from Home Depot laid across the spotter bars would do the trick.

    BDI, I just called FitnessEquipmentEtc, and they're quoting $550 now. Still almost a hundred less than what Fittrax first quoted me, so worth giving it a try. (or...

    BDI, correct me if I'm wrong (you bought your's there, right?), but I think Fittrax quoted me a number north of $600 a couple weeks ago for just the Lamar rack. They sold out of it on Saturday two...
