    The color will degrade quickly in direct sunlight. Structurally, it will hold up for awhile with the specifics of "how long" dependent on the quality of the PU.

    Everyone has different wants/needs. I have mostly PU plates with a few iron plates. Eventually, I'll go all PU, but I only buy plates used and haven't picked up enough yet to ditch all the iron.

    If I had to put plates outside, I would hop on FB Marketplace and get the cheapest plates I could find.

    I don't think noise is a big issue if you get some good collars (e.g. Lockjaw or similar),...

    FWIW PU colors will degrade quickly in direct sunlight. Structural damage will eventually occur, but how long it will take depends on the makeup of the PU. I imagine cheap PU plates will degrade...

    The water can't permeate the PU, but the PU isn't necessarily air/water tight. If there are any nicks in the coating or any uncoated areas behind the hub, that's a potential point of intrusion. The...

    They started doing this often since COVID. They stated that it is to get stuff out as quickly as possible. All of my previous orders in years past came in a single shipment.

    Wow, that's bad. It's even worse than the stuff I received from Black Widow Training Gear (they attached the UHMW to my safeties at a 30 degree angle to the actual steel).

    I imagine that some bean counter at Rogue probably determined they could save a few cents by leaving that extra material off.

    I have the Titan gun rack and have never hit the front when putting...

    The video is a good illustration of a glaringly obvious design flaw. Most treadmills have rails along 3 sides for this very reason. Peloton should be able to fix this quite easily with some minor...

    1. What does "something I can hit 10-12 times" mean? Are you progressing regularly? Are you doing the same weight every week? Are you doing some random amount of weight each time, based on how many...

    The massive footprint was one of the reasons I went with a Titan extension for my Rogue RML rack (cost was the other).

    I listed the longest one for $65 and it was gone in a day. YMMV of course, but I think you can do better than $25 pretty easily.
