guys, please help. Is what can be seen from the link above, the York training bar that some of you’ve been referring to? It’s listed as Ã?Â£59.95 or about 70 euros and free delivery from the French amazon site. It sounds a bit too good to be true. Is it?
PS: regarding purpose: I’m looking at a good bar to do cleans with at home. 3 days a week we do the full lifts at the gym with decent to very good bars. I have an option to buy one of the old and little bent bars from the gym for 50 euro, so I was wondering if the York bars would have been a better buy instead.[/quote]
That is too good to be true. That bar on Amazon is made by “York Fitness.” The bar that people are talking about here, the o-lifting bar, is made by “York Barbell,” an entirely different company.
just bought a Pendlay bearing bar. did it real fast before I would re-consider the dent in my bank account, haha.
I can highly recommend the pendlay bearing bar. I have trained extensively on it the last 4-5 months. I havent been able to make it to the gym to use the elikos. Had to train at work with my pendlay 5-6 workouts per week. I would personally take it over the elikos at this point.
I’ll 2nd/3rd this recommendation. Saw some video reviews on it over at this site: http://www.crossfitequipmentreviews.com/crossfit-gear/olympic-barbell
The Pendlay bearing bar I bought doesn’t have center knurling. I shouldn’t be too concerned about this right?

I think this is a plus. It tears the shit out of my neck when doing cleans.
I just went to that site that was listed above your post, had some good videos/info… made my decision to buy the Pendlay bar a lot easier over others.
Cool. It should be here on Monday, can’t wait!
I know this thread is old but I didn’t want to make a new one.
I was thinking of getting the TaiShan competition bar from StrengthShop.de. Its only 600 euro (+70 euro shipping to Ireland).
Anyone ever trained on one of these?
