Looks like a reasonable rack. Note that it's only 84" high (7ft) so if you are tall pullups, hanging leg raises will be annoying and you wont be doing shoulder press in the rack.
Im 6'2" and the height I need is ~92" to do those exercises. You wont find that height in a cheap rack, it forces you up to a 100" rack which likely wont fit in many houses.

It's nice that its a flat foot rack that doesnt need to be bolted down (the cross member on the front at the bottom is the tell there.)

700lb capacity, it looks like it will be pretty flimsy at that weight, Id suggest looking elsewhere if you are expecting to use >400lb regularly

I have their cheaper one without corner support braces. This one looks better for $100 more then what I paid. If you are in york university area, see if their warehouse has stock for pickup. Used my small hatchback to pick up the multi boxes just before the pandemic earlier this year.

I bought this a few years ago and it is a pretty solid rack. The only thing I didn’t like were the stock j hooks, they didn’t always fit properly (you would need to forcefully jam them in scraping the paint). Also the posts are 2.5” width not the typical 3” so Sourcing Quality j hooks is a challenge for this unit. Fit my Honda Civic no problem with the pull down accessories.

Anyone hear from Fitness Avenue to see when they're restocking anything. Contacted them but haven't heard back.

I had a crummy experience with Fitness Ave's Customer Service. It took over a month and a half to ship the items i Ordered. A month in I contacted them to cancel the order they got back to me 2 weeks later and said opps sorry it shipped. Then the products came missing pieces and it took them weeks to get back to me again.

27 days to ship to BC from day of order from Ontario. It was by truck all the way here VIA FedEx and that part was 5 days out of the 27. It was a multi bench (57 pounds). Shipping was $60. They had 2 options and I chose the Canada Post expedited parcel option thinking it would be faster (It was only $10 more). I emailed them saying why it didnt ship through Canada Post and they said its over 50 pounds so they couldn't. I asked for my $10 back they said we can only give you a full refund for the product and cancel the current shipping but at this point it was already shipped through FedEx.

It went from (Day 1) Woodbridge--》Thunder Bay. (Day 2) Thunder Bay--》Winnipeg. (Day 3) Winnipeg--》Medicine Hat. (Day 4)--》Medicine Hat--》Kamloops. (Day 5)--》Kamloops--》Delta--》Delivered.

So far I'm happy with the bench but I wouldn't buy from them again.

That's much faster than my rogue shipment which took 11 weeks (after the 4 week build time) and was lost by UPS twice in the process

That's brutal. I was going to buy a power rack from Rogue that was priced at $650 but the shipping for it was $400+ lol. I would have been super pissed if it took that long considering the shipping price it should be shipped by air to your city.

Is Treadmill Factory better in terms of shipping?

Id look at tydax https://tydax.com/adjustable-bench
It seems to come in stock fairly regularly and they seem to have a pretty good reputation for quality. Their support team is also really quick to reply to any queries.

I don’t understand why they don’t do curbside pickup. There is no reason why they can’t resume that safely. Shipping kills a lot of their deals like bumper plates.
