    You could also make the argument that a multipurpose bar like the Rogue Ohio Bar or Rogue Bar 2.0 would work for all of the above. No one really needs a bar specific to the task, but some prefer it.

    Urethane-coated plates are ideal imho. I am not familiar with either of the specific plates you posted though. I have Star Trac urethanes.

    Gotcha. Typically, once only oils a bar going up for sale for the purpose of addressing rust. :D FWIW, I use 3-in-1 on my bars.

    If you have something to soak it in, I recommend citric acid powder (CAP): water in a ratio of 3 oz:1 gal. Soak it for 24 hours and then wipe dry. Vinegar will work in a pinch also. If it's just a...

    The point of the meme is that dogs live in the moment whereas most people don't. Most of us are always on our phones, taking photos of the experience rather being present in the moment, thinking...

    I would be surprised if Rogue was completely abandoning the Infinity series. I don't know for certain if it's their most popular series, but anecdotally I'd guess that it is or was. Perhaps the...

    I'll second the specialty bars, but if it were me I'd one up most gyms and get some of the highly regarded specialty bars. For example, I'd get the Elite SSB or Crep over the generic Amazon...

    Yeah, that's too much. Selectorized pieces aren't that bad. Just remove the stack and you're usually good to go. The LF Pros are a little more of a PITA (as are some old Hoist pieces) simply...

    I've got about $14K into my home gym right now, so it wasn't a matter of whether or not I had the money to spend on genuine MAGs, but whether it was worth it for me to do so. I'm very happy with my...

    I like the old LF Pro/Pro2 lines. My only hesitation would be what appears to be a lack of adjustability. Maybe there are adjustment points I can't see though.

    This is from another Pro line,...

    I have the Vulcan curl bar. It has pretty good spin, long sleeves (for a curl bar), passive knurling and seems to be well-made overall. I would not expect the finish to uphold up long-term if that...

    I suspect that would compromise the structural integrity of the rack, but I am neither an engineer nor a metal fabricator so I'm only speculating.

    I have the Elite FTS and am happy with it. The paint job is designed to look nice when it arrives and that's about it. For what they charge I expected a better paint job, but the bar itself is...

    No, a lot of people have a difficult time with self-motivation. For me, I nearly always worked out alone long before a home gym ever even crossed my mind. These days I get to do it without dealing...

    The resistance is probably lesser than other models because airflow is a bit more restricted. Just pedal harder. :D

    Yeah, I considered the 3D printer route. I don't know anyone with one, but I could probably find someone to do it via Marketplace, etc.
