Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Craigslist Thread (Round 3)

The last thread got up over 10,000 posts with too many people asking if they should pick up the bowflex down the street, so it's time to start a new one. Let's all keep our eyes open for the shake weights for .20/lb, strap on our Chucks, and speed away on our unicycles for those sweet pick ups....

Ok so let's go through the cheapest options for new equipment that you'd be willing to use for training. While we all dream of buying that custom built rig, or finding a solid piece of used commercial or vintage equipment to outfit your gym, many times we just want to buy something that's usable...

Post Sticky Thread Sticky: Barbells - Everything you ever wanted to know

I don't think a thread like this exists for the barbell, so I wanted to start one. The Olympic barbell is one of the most important purchases one can make for their home gym. A barbell is the interface to the weight and although they may all look similar to an untrained eye, there are actually a...

Power rack or keep what I have??

First post! I have about a 12x12 area in my basement that I currently have a Powertec Multigym in there. The problem I'm seeing for when we actually finish the basement is the thing takes up a space of 8x10 which leaves no room for my wife's treadmill/yoga stuff. She likes to do the video...

How much for a set of rubberized pro-style Ivanko 5-100lb dumbbells?

Have an opportunity to buy a set of used 5-100lb dumbbells, 5lb increments, with rack. The guy wants $4000. I offered him $2500, which I think is more than fair. Here's the actual dumbbells: What's a fair price on these?

Airdyne refurb

I got this bike a while ago in terrible shape. I completely redid the whole bike and did a few upgrades along the way. Also a shot with my Lamar bike I got to use while I was working on the Schwinn. Now in typical equipment crew fashion.... I think I want to keep them both 😀

Drilling out weight plates and my new pro style dumbbells

I had 144 standard weight plates, and 22 pro-style dumbbell handles. Problem? The handles are 28mm (approx. 1 1/16 inch), while many of the plates would only accommodate a 1 inch (approx. 25mm) bar. I did quite a bit of online research to find the best way to deal with this issue, i.e. how to...

Not sure what to think of this one. I'd like more than one pick of a disgruntled dude. From what I see... The camber is not enough, imo. The arms needs to be at least double the length. The option to change the camber is pretty cool. I wish this was an option on all SSBs. No weight. With...
