I'm after secondhand Olympic kit. Decent bumpers - 15s, 20s or 25s, a 28mm bar with reasonable spin and some rubber for s rudimentary platform. If anyone is selling any kit please let me know!

Not second hand, but sell everything you're after at www.strengthshop.co.uk. All bars (other than Texas Squat and Deadlift bars) are 28mm diameter.

Buzz's service is second to non I can also vouch for his weightlifting Bar

I think everyone assumed you new about Strengthshop. That's why No-one else has recommended it

They also have discount packages that could be everything your looking for

Edit : I don't work for Strengthshop or have an affiliation. I'm just a happy customer

Yeah I did know about strengthshop, should have mentioned it in the original post. Thanks for the reply Buzz, will most likely end up getting my kit from yourself. Anyone with experience of the oly bars, do they spin nicely? I'm not expecting eleiko, but so long as the spin is reasonable I'd be very interested in getting one.

I was just throwing it out there in case anyone was getting rid of some old bumpers or a bar. Cash is pretty tight (final year of 6 years of Uni) so I'm trying to save wherever possible.

You might be lucky and get 2nd hand stuff, so worth a post anyway, been a few guys getting rid of bits and pieces on here in the last month or so.

General's got an Oly bar, so has Thing, and DavyCummings. That's off the top of my head. We had an old Eleiko Oly bar in the gym and I compared the spin on that to our Oly bars, and they were very similar. It's a good bar, decent knurling, 28mm shaft, rated to 1500lbs, needle bearings.
