I am looking at purchasing an Olympic bar for use in my gym, however space is tight so I do not know whether to buy a 5', 6' or 7' bar. Is there any other difference (other than length and weight)that would recommendd one bar against the others, ie in terms of balance etc. I would appreciate some advice. Thanks

David,

Here's a link to the same question I asked last fall, and an answer:

http://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/26/2146.html

I ended up with a standard 7-foot, 45-lb bar without center knurling.

Maybe Lincoln will see this and give you a much more educated and experienced answer than I can give!

You can get a 30 lb. bar from Bigger Faster Stronger that has a full length bar but with shortened sleeves. It will still fit a fair amount of plates on the sleeves.
