New Barbell Sleeves for Cheap Olympic Bar

I have an old cheap olympic barbell that has both sleeves cracked from dropping deadlifts on. Does anyone know where i can find replacement sleeves for it? I have searched and have found nothing. this is an old sports authority barbell.

Having just scoured the internet and finally bought bar/weights. I’m guessing you can buy an entire econo-bar for the same price you could find the sleeves.

Buy a decent Texas Power Bar rather than some cheap Sports Authority crap.

what have you been using since you last made the thread about your Sports Authority bar? definitely invest in a quality bar, you won’t ever regret it

CAP OB86 is like $120 and a great all around bar. Texas Power Bar is $300 and even better

I don’t know guys, you can get ten cheap bars off Craigslist for 300 bucks.

OP, unless your really serious, I say buy a cheap bar off craig’s. How much do you DL?

I already have a buddy caps Texas power bar, however, I want to refurbish this bar so I can do super sets and circuits with it for exercises that wont be as heavy as my main lifts. I originally saw replacement sleeves a long time ago on google but now i cant find them.

If that’s the case, just buy a cheap bar off Craig’slist. It’ll take you at least a couple of years to fully beat the crap out of it, then you can get another.
