    I had a Troy 6' curl bar I liked very well. I think it was the same one you had a link for , it fit in a power rack , 30mm, and had pretty decent bends.

    I wouldn't pay more than .50/lb for cheap plates or $1/lb for better ones.

    This is my first thought. How high is the top of the crossmember? If it is high enough that the bar rests on them, as mentioned, place a mat to stand on and rest the plates on.
