    I don't recall ever selling one that cheap. I typically get about twice that, and rarely hold them more than a couple weeks.

    Every market is different. In this area, the majority of the sub-$200...

    It can be done on the older models with a bit of work, but it's damn-near plug and play on the models with the digital consoles. Heads up for anyone interested in doing the conversion: the Xebex...

    Yes.

    I snag functional consoles and battery covers whenever I can get them at a decent price. Right now I have a spare rectangular digital console with cord and pickup, 2 complete analog consoles...
  • Question for vintage Airdyne owners/users

    Just kinda thinking out loud here...

    Do any of you actually use the "load indicator"?

    I've sold a handful of Airdynes this year, and a bunch more last year, and have noticed a difference in...

    Unless you're a pre-teen girl or 75+ yr old woman, you're going to need more than an 80kg stack on a leg press machine.

    To be fair, most people really aren't all that bright.

    You'd probably be better off buying a cheap bolted oly bar and removing the sleeves, as long as your plates will fit the larger diameter bar.

    They also have an extra set of bar hooks on the front of the spotter arms that work well for racking a bar before/after skull crushers or LTE.

    I liked that feature so much, I added a set to my...

    The CFF 7 kg technique bar I bought for my wife has a 200lb limit (supposedly), so the ratings do vary quite a bit from brand to brand. I think 50-75lbs is probably safe, though.

    Also, keep it out...

    Agreed.

    7kg would make it a technique bar, not something for heavy weights. Team it with a pair of technique plates to teach young kids or women proper form.

    I find it to be pretty useful.

    My bench latches to my rack, so it's almost always in the same spot. I use the pad gap to make sure I'm always situated in the same spot under the bar.

    I guess it depends how much weight you're using. I have a pair of spinlock handles that'll hold 120 lbs in 10lb pancakes each, and I don't find the ends to be in the way at all...as long as they're...

    Interesting design, but way too expensive for what is essentially just a spinlock and pro-style hybrid.

    $175 for 5-60 lb handles
    $250 for 5-120 lb handles (currently $215 on sale)

    I'm intrigued.

    Can you post some detailed pics so we can see how they work? Their website is ****.

    Can you weld? Many years ago I wound up with a two piece EZ curl bar. It had tons of slop in the joint, so i ran a bead around the joint, and it worked fine.

    If you can weld, the sleeve ends...

    Seriously?

    It's a $40 olympic barbell that only weighs 25 lbs and has two joints in the shaft, and your primary complaint is the finish? :D

    One of the cool things about both products is that they were compact enough to fit in a gym bag. That, combined with the fact that neither required permanent installation, made them useful for those...
