I recently got a Rogue bar, which I like real well. I think its a fine piece of steel, its very pleasant to hold and use, and I plan to use it for a long time. At the same time, I have a lot of 1" standard plates, mostly York. For some lifts, these will work all right, for one thing I can have the standard weights at a poundage for say bent rows.
I would like to find a 1" standard barbell. Are there any of these made in the US any more?
I am going hunting on craigs list.
usually cheaper weight equipment comes with a standard bar so try sports authority or play it again sports.

On CL if you look for weight sets, you can find them, even listed as olympic bars, people don't know what they have usually.

Wile we're on the topic.... Does anyone know how much standard bars weight? I've heard people say from 15-25 pounds. Or does it just vary from bar to bar?
Sorry to hijack the thread...
