Note that 90kg of bumpers will get you up to 110kg total with the bar.

First question: What are you going to do about strength work (squats and such)? 110kg will run out relatively quickly. Do you have metal plates or other options for squats and deadlifts?

Second question: Why not the black bumpers instead of the colored bumpers?

If it were I, I'd consider the black bumper kilo set and add in the hi-temp 10lb (discontinued) bumper plates. Other options are:

1) plywood plates as Garrett notes above
2) Use metal plates up to 40kg, and use blocks to start from the right height
3) Use metal plates and lift from the hang
