    Bang Head Two structural beams I have to be brutally...stiff

    or honest.

    I have no clue what I'm doing but this is the scenario:

    I have to buy a 4.2 meters long steel tube. Two structural beams will hold it in place so yours truly can dangle monkey style on an aerial hoop.
    My weight (+hoop) will be equally shared by 2 chains placed at about 2m and 3.5m (due to lack of space on one side).

    Anyone can give advice regarding type of steel best suited for such a job and what specs I should be looking for since static weight will be about 55Kg and dynamic weight (I suppose) may impact the steel eventually?

    Any help would be much appreciated!!!

    What is this for?
    And, a quick sketch of what you are thinking would be helpful...
