    Where is the cheapest place I can buy one?

    I think it'd suck to order it online cuz of the shipping price.

    If I were to start from scratch as a young 13 year old again, I would do every press, squat, and perhaps deadlifts, for my entire career with chains. -- Dan John

    Let's just say that I would be comfortable putting 500lbs on it, but not me.
