    Craigslist doesnt have shit right now thats not a fragile looking pos.

    Leaning here. Seems like a good deal with the lat attachment included and free shipping. Might be coups I could find online also.

    Seems like a lot to pay for a cage though :o

    If you think thats a lot for a cage then you don't know the price ranges.

    I have that rack. It's great. I didn't buy the lat attachment and I paid around $350-400 for it several years ago. I can double check once I get home but I would re-evaluate whether or not you need the pullies.

    just wait craigslist will have something soon enough. I have 2 half racks and about 1500 pounds of weight and i havent spent 500 bucks. That also includes, adjustable dumbbells, olympic bars/ez curl/dumbbell handles/collars, and pully attachments.

    If you have the room, i would say buy it. but dont ever pay asking price for large equipment, due to the fact most ppl just want it gone. Then as you find better stuff, sell it and stay firm on asking price if you have room to store it.

    and iron seems to be going up in price. used to be able to get stuff for .50 per lb, .30 or less from craigslist.

    i tried to buy some 50lb hex dumbells from a guy the other day but someoen offered him $85 for them! hell no! i checked the interwebs and that's the going rate.

    !!

    that's right around the corner from my father-n-law. i could get that and store it in his basment until we have a place to put it....

    edit: not that one, the other one in ashburn with the cage


    this one this guy is on there...doesnt look as sturdy but for $100 it might be a steal
