    Should call it look what I didn't buy today. I've been mulling over the Inspire FT from Costco for days. Talked it over with the wife, measured and figured out what is need to rearrange, when back to the website to find that it's out of stock. Hopefully they'll get some back in stock.

    I'm sure he'll love the bar, I suspect you'll be tempted to try it out, I think you may be pleasantly surprised, the SSB is a great way to add variety, traditional SSB squats, supported squats, (holding the rack uprights) and good mornings are my favourites.

    Yea pretty much, I think you can do it for long periods but you have to be very controlled and keep it low. Of course as soon as I get it there is a decent deal on the CII bike erg which I kinda want as well but that was over an hour drive and a few hundo more. Hopefully moving in the spring/summer so I should probably wait anyway.

    After searching for several months I got an Ironmaster 75 kit. Really impressed with the quality of these weights and handles. Drove about 4 hours round trip but it was worth it.

    Does a Sonos ARC stream music from WIFI? Does it sound good without the subs? I don't know much about that system.

    We use a Bose Soundlink 30 which I like, just looking for the future.

    Sonos sounds great for what it is, in fact their amps are legitimate hifi imo.

    But this year they split their ecosystem in two, with one being legacy with limited support. They had planned on abandoning support completely before massive public outcry caused them to promise limited support for legacy hardware. Personally, I avoid their products, as planned obsolescence is likely part of their internal road map.

Still need to inventory the exact quantity of each plate and figure out what would sell easier.

    Almost snagged a 45lb pair of the Hoist Quick Change the other day, but the kids was playing the "Someone offered me more game" after he accepted my original offer and I decided not to mess with someone who lacked integrity LOL. I'll be on the lookout though, might take a few years but hopefully I'll find another 75-80lb set.

    I'm the same way. Once they start playing games, whether it's the "someone offered me more" crap or the "race to my house between 27 of you. Go!" I'm done.

    I was fortunate to find a seller that was very dependable and honest with this 75 kit. I had some annoying games with a few other IM sellers over the past three months but this guy was legit.

    A few years ago I sold some gym stuff and I had buyers that were really all over the place, showing up an hour late, all kinds of crazy excuses, "hey I forgot $20 will you take the asking price less $20" and that kind of crap.

    It honestly seems to get worse the less you are asking for something, too. I've been chewed on for not pulling a free curb alert ad (didn't even know it was gone yet) because the crab "drove 45 minutes and the ad is still up!". It was out there 20 minutes ago, lady, sorry for going in to eat Sunday breakfast with my family instead of standing on the curb watching my "Free, no holds, no calls/emails" chewed up old dog cage so I could pull the ad the second it was picked up. Deepest apologies, have a nice drive back.

    Last year I had a DB set listed for $400 including the rack. In the ad I put something like "That's like $X per lb and $50 for the rack." This guy shows up and tells me he doesn't have enough cash. He did the whole pocket patting, searching the console, etc. bit looking for the cash he forgot. He asks me if it's ok that he's $50 short and I tell him he can take the set, but no rack. He does some more pocket patting and hark(!), he finds another $20. "OK, so all I have is $420." I'm confused for a second and then it dawns on me that the scammer misread the ad and thought it was $400 + $50 for the rack. I stay silent for a moment as I ponder what to do and then say: "Yeah, that's fine." And let the conman con himself out of $20.

    I had one awhile back. A state trooper. Wanted me to do half off on olympic plates i had. Kept saying thats what he pays. Now he tried this bs in person. I offered to do 40 bucks off. He wouldnt do it. Now i dont like cops. They are land pirates. I still tried to offer some off when i shouldnt. He left and said let me know if i change my mind. After he was gone for 5 min i messaged him and said if he wants to discuss a lower price he shouldn't do that in person. Its disrespectful.

    I leave to go home and this state trooper pulls in front of me a few streets from where i met the douche. He stops at a green light. Forcing me to stop. He doesnt go thru until its yellow forcing me to be stuck at a red light. He didnt turn he went straight thru after stopping. Was prob hoping i hit him or ran a red light. I thought about reporting him for trying to cause an accident (i wasnt on the interstate so im sure it was the same douche) but i didnt. He'll get his karma.

    I sold the plates for my asking price a few days later.

    I won't make a statement on the haggling bit, but did "AAA with guns" show up in his patrol car/uniform to buy weights? Also, if you don't have a dash cam you should probably get one.

    I had a cop show up in patrol car/uniform to sell me a C2 rower. I didn't catch him manually turning the monitor on and later learned the cable was severed because some fool ran it past the chain. I texted him about it and he told me that it was my problem and "We're done now. Got it?" Loud and clear, pal. You're the law and what you say goes. :eyeroll:

    Re the haggling, if my ad says firm or you're plan is to lowball me I expect any attempt at negotiation to be done via online because I really, really detest having my time wasted. And if you already said "I'll take it" then you have already accepted my price and if you show up with $5 less, you can pound sound just for trying to con me.
