Re: About to build a garage gym, a few questions about equipment inside...

Get the Rogue Bar for sure.

We've got one each of York's better bars (the needle bearing men's and women's bars), I think they're 1500 lb bars too, and while they've got decent spin (nowhere near other needle bearing bars I've seen though), they've got center knurling (because it's chrome), which I don't like, and they're FORTY-ONE POUNDS!!!!!

Their "20kg" bar is 41 freaking pounds. Their women's bar is 15kg, 33 lbs, which is correct.

Honestly, it's not a terrible bar, but it's freaking annoying to put 4 lbs worth of fractional plates on it every time to get to an even 45 lbs (actually 3 lbs, because our collars are about 7 oz each... I'm nitpicky when it comes to my actual weights for Oly lifts).

Just go with the Rogue bar.. their "20kg" bar is 44 lbs, which is correct.
There is no argument over the choice between peace and war, but there is only one guaranteed way you can have peace - and you can have it in the next second - surrender.
