Does anyone have a power tower (pull-up, dip, and L-sit station) that they are looking to unload? It doesn't have to be pretty because it's going to be kept outdoors, but I would like it to be structurally sound.

. . . and that horn section is definitely structurally sound. Love me some Tower of Power.

^^^ Thanks for the info -- I picked one today for less than $100 after tax. It was easy to put together and it's very sturdy. Now I just need to make myself use it regularly.

I've missed 3-4 days out of the last 6 weeks -- I'd say I'm finally using it regularly. I can notice the difference while riding too. I did 27 miles at Cuyamaca on Sunday and my triceps, traps, and lats didn't get tired like they used to.

Thanks Mongooseboy for the recommendation to Big 5.
