Mike and Marks Bar
Mike Burgener and Mark Rippetoe have teamed up with industry leader York Barbell to provide the ultimate Olympic weightlifting/powerlifting bar that is perfect for CrossFit workouts.
The B&R Bar by York Barbell is produced to their precise specifications. It has a 29 mm shaft with a 200,000 lb. yield strength, marked for both powerlifting and weightlifting movements. It features the perfect light weightlifting knurl that has made York Barbell famous, with a center knurl for squats and an extra half-inch of smooth steel between the knurls to protect your shins during deadlifts, cleans, and snatches. Manufactured with sintered bushings in the sleeves for reliable spin and low maintenance, and with sleeves attached with the same bulletproof end caps used on York competition weightlifting bars, the B&R is designed for heavy commercial gym use in a wide variety of training environments.
Most barbell manufacturers add chrome or other plating material to their bars to prevent discoloration from rust -- it is not there to improve performance. The B&R Bar by York Barbell bar is made for serious lifting, not for looking shiny on the rack. No coating can ever match the look and feel of natural steel, and this quality old-school bar will age to a natural oxidized finish that matures along with your training and experience. This is the last bar you will ever have to buy. It will join the many tens of thousands of bars made by York Barbell since the 1950's that are still going strong.
Thanks Casey and Natalie for being our models!
This bar is bare steel and just like any fine piece of machined steel this will require some upkeep. Occasionally brushing the bar down with 3 in 1 oil or WD-40 will create a beautiful patina look. This is how bars were made for decades and this creates an unmatched feel

Worth its weight in gold.... all 20KgReview by RockOn
This bar has a solid knurling that requires little chalk for a solid grip. The bare steel feels like it locks in a little better than any coating. You can't complain about the spin, very solid and allows for a nice turn. The center knurling locks in perfect for front or back squats. Just not ideal for high rep cleans because it will eat your neck up without chalk.
All around killer bar and it will be a staple for years to come.

Great bar for OLY/PowerliftingReview by RippetoeIsGoodForYou
The only 'negative' is that this bar needs maintenance. I wear gloves and live in a humid environment so frequent cleaning and oiling are needed if you don't want the bar to look dirty or rust.
Very happy with my purchase.
