    Can anyone recommend some decent Olympic weights with 2" diameter for a multigym.

    Any deals to be had on the uk mail-order sites, ideally I would like a 125kg set to start off with, I've seen some tri weights that look half decent, but would prefer them to be in black if at all possible but they only seem to be available in silver.

    Any thoughts on some half decent weights?

    Thank you for the link, do you know if the inner diameter is 2"? how bad were the blemishes or are they very minor which would occur from a days usage anyway.

    I just checked the details and unfortunately they're 1"

    Your absolutely right, I didn't read the details properly, they seem pretty good value for the kg.

    just buy the cheapest you can find, look on ebay and gumtree - there maybe some 2nd hand ones...

    afterall, you're gonna lift them, and not look at them? :)
