Heavy squats feel weird now in my vibrams, but I would prefer to leave my heavy rogues at home while on the road.
That's true, most commercial or hotel gyms don't like that kind of thing.

I don't really have an issue squatting with the 230s, as a matter of fact I almost prefer doing low-bar squats with them. I mean, they are definitely a different feel than squatting in Olys (I have Do-Wins as well), but after you get used to it - it's really only a mental thing - there's no reason you can't go just as heavy. That is assuming you have halfway-decent ankle flexibility.
