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....

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...

Question Ivanko OMEZ Color?

Dear forum members, I designed and manufactured heavy-duty plate-loaded muscle-building machines from a period of time 15-30 years ago. I failed, and lost a lot of money. A member on this forum, who saw some of the machines I was building then, encouraged me to give it another try. ...

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 😀

How's Inzer shipping times these days?

Is it actually as stated right now? 2 business days to ship? Or is it going to take up to 10 weeks like the whole fiesta back a couple years. Ordered a Black Small 10mm buckle on another note how crazy is it that the the most reputable powerlifting supplier takes up to 12 weeks to make a belt

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...

Transformer Bar

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...
