This is bar made by my friend. Inspiration was Kauper Pintxo bar.

Work very well.
Inside details

Pulleys place

Carbon pipe is only cover
That's one bar done right!
Where do I order one (or two)? Or maybe three-four because two of my friends would want that

Hey Guys,

An idea that I am not really sure if it has been posted here, but has anyone ever thought of us doing our own, "open source" bar? I imagine it as something everyone could add their tips on, along with sourcing out accessible materials.

Is there a reason nobody goes titanium? I know the weight issue but has lot of benefits as well. it's Grade 2 which is maintenance free and strong!

Take a look at this quick model I made. Reduced the weight to 150 gr! I'm gonna run stress calculations and will share the results. its 55 cm Long

I suppose titanium is more expehensive than carbon

I think it's less that $20 for a 60 cm bar and 20mm diameter. Grade 2
