I found that and I found a few listing for 7 foot Olympic bars from 150-200+ F (francs?)

Sounds like an entry level bar.

30mm is pretty thick. If you have smaller hands, hook grip might be an issue. The difference in the feel and whip of a bar is a lot different when you go from 30 to 28mm most of the time.

I find it odd they have not 1 or 2 but 4 Olympic platforms but went for some super entry level bars.

Train with what ya got. Maybe sneak in a bar that is better in due time.
