Ogrok, just because Rippetoe and the SS routine have become very popular in the last year or so, doesn't mean that you have to hate him and his training methods.
His S*** works. How can you argue, really? Is it the only way? No not really. But is it a damn good way to train? Hell ya it is!!
Also, how are power cleans not good bodybuilding exercises? My shoulders and traps finally started to grow like weeds since I started doing cleans. Those were always my lagging bodyparts too. Just because power cleans do MORE then just build muscle, doesn't mean that they aren't good bodybuilding exercises. God forbid they may actually help the OP to do other things besides just look good.
In a nutshell, bodybuilding is really all about diet. Building muscle is done simply by lifting heavy things and eating a lot. Getting all cut is done by eating clean and in a caloric deficit. Therefore, I still fail to see how SS or a similar program is not a good "bodybuilding" routine.

My personal blog/website dedicated to giving answers on the age old question - how to escape the "rat race". I now play guitar for a living!
I have a question about the bar that I am using.
Would It be okay to use the same 5 ft bar i use for my bench, for my deadlift and squat? That is, untill I get the recommended one.
