    Does 2MoreRepz know about this place?

    Know about it? He owns the place and is thinking about franchising it.
    You need a good rack, a bench, and a 300-lb Olympic weight set. Now, what was your question?

    I think the Ivanko bars are hard chromed but I'm not 100% sure. I'll see what I can find out. According to Ironcompany.com the Ivanko bars include:

    + Precision forged steel swivels.
    + Rubber safety ends.
    + Deep, custom-knurled grips.
    + Highly polished, triple chrome plating.

    Thanks Yes, I did buy them through Amazon from Ivanko... I was going to buy a bundle pack from fitness edge online but they were sold out; So, I just bought the two bars that I really wanted for now.

    I'm fairly certain they're hard chromed, I've had the triangle and long bent attachment before.

    I think they are... If that is what triple chrome plating means. The knurling definitely feels much sharper than my CAP cable attachments.

    Triple chrome plating and hard chrome plating are two different things. Hard Chrome is when they slather or "dunk" the object in a bunch of coating and triple chrome is where they put different thin layers of different coatings on...I believe this is the most expensive type of plating, but I could be wrong.

    For some reason I got my hampton attachment mixed with my ivankos, the only ivanko lat attachment I've had are the small straight one and the what I can "doggy toy" attachment.

    Picked up some brand new in box urethane Intek's this morning for a buck a lb this morning, and capped it off in the afternoon with a great score.
    I picked up a Texas Power bar with the ghost logo, with some weights that I sold right away, making this cost 70 dollars and an hour drive.
    The guy said he bought it in the 90's to work out, and barley used it. It had very light flash rust and one scuff on the sleeve from storage, which took 10 min with a nylon brush and some balistol to restore to like new. That rust around the logo is the worst of the wear.

    That's a great find and awesome price for the TPB. That bar is identical to my TPB with the etched ends

    Definitely spent to much! May need to relist a few pairs of 45's to recoup, but really hard to do now that they are in my possession! On the flip side, I can not imagine needing this much weight (in addition to my iron plates)

    I do feel that I got a good deal on the lot. Many thanks to youtube guy Brandon Campbell for the hookup! Really nice guy..

    Yes, As soon as the listing came up, I knew they were his plates (being the small state of Rhode Island)... I watch his videos pretty regularly, but had no idea that he is like 6'5"... big friggin dude. He probably wanted to call the cops to have me removed when I wanted to check out all his equipment etc... but he was really nice, and even gave me a couple shirts from his sponsors..

    Given that they are stamped with a year, I imagine there'd be some sellers remorse down the line if you sell a couple for a few bucks now. I'd hold them unless the money is needed to pay bills or meet other commitments.

    Dude appreciate you coming and picking them up. Glad they went to a good home. Also nice job on those plate holders. If I ended up keeping them I was considering doing the same.

    Mech6 adjustable Monolift arrived today. Had a little shipping snafu, but we banged it out. :P
    It is badass, crazy atention to detail, and much more complicated that you would think. Nylon bushings, counter weights are separate pieces, etc. Just artisan craftsmanship.
    I'll have to get adjusted to the swingy-ness of it, but I can already tell from just playing around tonight that it will really help with set up.
    Bonus picture of Spooky, the scourge of the weight room. :P

    Ordered up the final piece to the gym tonight a set of rogue adjustable mono lifts and now I'm done spending money on this gym for a long time. I'm way over budget and now time to enjoy it til I need more Olympic plates.

    Yes sir..

    I am very torn on what to do with that space. Obviously at some point I am going to replace it, but I am not sure with what. Options would be a second rack, assault bike/rower, full size GHD... At this point, I am just keeping as is until I have an epiphany!
