Re: Where to buy Concept2 rower

Patience and dedication will get you one on Craigslist. I just got mine 2 nights ago for $400. It's in perfect shape and was 3 miles from my house.

Re: What best glue for wooden rings?

Either of the glues that you suggested will work fine. I used polyurethane glue for mine, just because I had some sitting around. Note that if you do use the poly, make sure that you slightly...

Re: Gym clearance sale today in San Diego

I would buy all of the free weights - you could easily flip them on craigslist for double or triple that. These are crazy deals.

Re: How to care for a quality olympic bar

Paul - I've got a question regarding the light coat of oil. I've never had to do this with my other (cheap) olympic bars. They've got a chrome coating on them, which this bar doesn't. I have the...

Re: Clydesdale Division (200+ lbs) Pullups

Re: Squat stronger than Deadlift

Any use for an EZ Curl Bar?

I'm curious if anyone uses an EZ curl bar for any crossfit purpose. I've got one sitting here gathering dust and I'm going to sell it if there isn't a good use for it.
