Hey guys and gals, i was wondering if anyone knows just how much weight a standard 1 inch thick 7 foot long chrome bar can take?
till now i’ve used my 6 foot steel bar, but i was in Dicks sporting goods today and saw a 7 foot and got it for laughs.
Now i load up 200 and it looks like its bending a fair amount. Now granted this could be due to the fact that im used to looking at a 6 ft bar so obviously the load is closer together and bends less. So the real question is, if i put 350-400 lbs on it am i risking it snapping?
