In the market for a barbell

I'm not looking for top of the line, but I'm not wanting to drop $150-$200 on junk either. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good bar?

Re: Knee Sleeves

What about sizing for the sleeves? The site says to measure a part of the body which I do not know how to identify. Is there an easier way to figure out what size you need?
