I also have a standard 5 ft bar that's like hollow chrome and weighs maybe 3 lb. I wouldn't dream of putting much more than 150 lb on that thing. Again, I have no idea what the official capacity is, but it feels very cheap and flimsy.
But as everyone in my thread pointed out, if you're serious about working out and getting stronger you really do need to be shopping for an Oly set. I snagged a 300# set for $85 on Craiglist and I'm very happy I went for it.
