Default Castro Bar

Is it a Cowboy themed Castro Bar, or more a Leather/Bear/Biker kind of bar?

Perfect timing, bad name...

The universe remains deeply weird.

Someone needs to market the Fat Fuck Bar...free 'not now, sweetheart' shirt included with every bar.

You don't even have to order the Castro bar. It will simply show up in your gym, interrupt your training program, and leave without providing any positive benefit.

Who came up with the name Castro bar? That sounds queer.

haha... I can't believe this is real! The Castro bar complete with SEAL trident and all... and could the capping be a "solution" to keeping sand out???? That may be a reasonable explanation since this was probably created to market to MIL guys.

I just looked at the bar itself. 20kg seems a little optimistic, doesn't it?

You think anyone who buys it could optimistically handle 20kg? That's a lot to ask for the average CF'er.

Sure it isn't "carbon fiber core"?
