    My basement is mostly underground so the temps are pretty well-controlled. The lowest I've seen it get since I put a thermometer down there is 44F with an outside temp of 2F. With that in mind, I...

    I'm with vhd16. $100 certainly isn't going to break me, especially on a home gym I probably sank about $8K into, but I don't think I would be too keen on paying it for a slightly larger pin size on...

    I've been doing it since I started piecing the home gym together about a year ago. I do it about once a month. No negatives.

    FWIW, I have placed a couple orders with this company and both were canceled due to unavailability (already sold). Weeks later I noticed the items were still for sale and sent an email inquiring...

    I didn't order anything this year, but the stuff I ordered MBF 2018 took several weeks to arrive. When I inquired about it, they said they often get backed up due to the huge jump in sales during...

    I'm probably going to still say Vulcan, though after recently getting one I will say there's no doubt this is a Chinese-made bar. It's a nice enough bar, but FWIW there's virtually no spin and the...
