    2" diam.

    I am pretty sure the bar is 2" diameter at the ends. . .
    I used to work out in my basement and I made 1 and .5 lb sleeves from 2.5 in galvanized pipe. worked great. they just slide on. . .my dad had the tools to cut it and I weighed them on an electronic scale and shaved off the ends a bit at a time til they were right on. .

    handy man:-)

    THanks bro, it was not all that hard really and if you went to a plumbing supply store they would probably cut it for you. then all you need is a pretty big file to get the weigth right.
    wrist rollers are great for that super full arm pump. .
