    "price isnt important, as long as its under $50" lol

    Then price is pretty important isn't it.

    Look at the Iron Gym Extreme.

    I think he means 50 pounds. That is about $75. He should be able to get a nice pull up bar for that amount.

    You want wall mounted, or doorway?
    Doorway this is the best over here by a county mile;
    http://www.powertrainer.co.uk/
    Lets you get your hands about a 2 inches wider than a standard doorway, with none of the (IMO) useless sloping grip most others put on at the ends.
    Also the bar is higher than other doorway bars, which will help if you're 6' 1"

    They also do a wall mounted one, but I have no experience with wall mounted ones of anysort;

    Pull up bars

    I've been looking for pull up bars lately...specifically ones which can attach to the ceiling as that is what's available in my space right now.

    I was seriously considering:
    1. make your own...go to lowes and buy some metal pipe, have it cut/threaded to my specs, use connectors/flanges to mount it to a board, and then mount the board to the ceiling.

    2. wait till I get a power rack with one.

    3. something from easychin.com

    4. something from http://www.studbarpullup.com/

    5. something from newyorkbarbells.com

    I ruled #1 out because of personal taste and the politics of completing this project in my house. Ruled #2 out because I'm impatient and am seriously considering an open-top rack anyway without a pull up bar because of my garage gym setup.

    Out of 3,4, and 5, I just last night ordered the stud bar pull up. More costly, but it does match my ceiling studs 24 in spacing, plus at 48 inches wide you can do wide grip pull ups.

    Plus, it looks nice and I was won over by seeing the video's / installation on their site. I emailed them too and they said they'd cut my bar to a shorter vertical length from the ceiling for me to accomodate my smaller space.

    He said it would ship today, so I'll post something about the ease of installation and how I like it once it arrives.

    The Iron Gym works out fine for me. Haven't had a problem with it yet and I am 235#.

    The only thing that seems to be falling apart are the paddings against the doorframe.

    I personally just bought the Iron Gym Extreme online after doing some research on various door systems. I won't be getting it until next week, so I can't rate it, but from what I understand, there is no drilling needed and it can be used for pull-ups, sit-ups, and push-ups. And it is only $40 or so.

    I actually made a ceiling mounted one so it can go in my garage using the iron gym. I know all the wood would hold the weight but as for how much the iron gym holds I am unsure.

    OP,
    If you want a doorway one, then the Iron Gym Xtreme is the one for you. Be sure to get the Xtreme one, because it has the proper handles for wide grip pullups. It is also well within your price range.

    Here is my review of it:

    I am in the Dep in the USMC and need to improve on my pull ups. I tried the walmart ones that you attach to the door way and did not care for them. So me and my dad built this pull up bar it does the job. Hopefully it will give you a idea. Cost was under 50 dollars

    Best pull-up bar? It's the one that comes with the rack you have, to go with the FID and 300-lb weight set.
    You need a rack, bench and 300-lb. Oly set. Now, what was your question?

    Best (door way) pull up bar I have used is the one from Beachbody.com's web site. Very sturdy, quality hand grips, and tons of variety. Not cheap though, most people just say get the Irongym, which I have used and think sucks compared to Beachbody. And I also tried my brother's cheap Golds Gym version (Walmart) and it was worse than the Irongym.

    http://www.beachbody.com/product/fit...chin_up_bar.do

    Now if you want to stay cheap and want to do door way pullups wih your feet hanging straight, then I would give this one a try. Not high quality, but I have been really surprised at how well it has held up for the price and a brand name that is not highly respected.

    I agree that these pullup bars are MUCH better than the Iron Gym or any doorway pullup bar out there. This may not be doable for someone in an apartment or whatever though.
    I still have yet to build one like this, but want to do it badly.

    Please give us the specs, materials, etc and how much the total cost was, spare no detail. My birthday is Friday...maybe I will get enough cash to purchase the materials.

    I really like these, although I saw a similar one built with a design mod which I think makes sense. Instead of using the floor flanges attached to the side like this pic (which I'm sure works great), it had the plumping pipe going into a 90 degree curved joint which was attached to a flange screwed into the TOP of the post. That seems more secure to me, but I'm no engineer.

    Anyway, it was at a local park where they had free standing pull-up bars like this, and then also imagine the same thing only on much shorter posts, and in a pair...an easy way to make dip bars, parallel bars which were also there at the park. Those had an additional flange/pipe connecting the two bases on either end for a nice little step-up.

    I have the Rogue p-3 bar which is similar to the stud bar. It is currently cheaper than the stud bar, but I'm not sure about the difference after shipping costs.

    Anyway, I'd highly recommend the Rogue bar specifically, but you really can't go wrong getting a nice wall or ceiling mounted bar.

    I still have yet to build one like this, but want to do it badly.

    Please give us the specs, materials, etc and how much the total cost was, spare no detail. My birthday is Friday...maybe I will get enough cash to purchase the materials.

    Repped.
    I prefer to run the bar though the post and screw the flange on backwards.

    extremist, would you still not recommend kipping on your diy pullup bar? I heard you say in the video, but if the bar goes through both posts would that be a problem?

    Take a look on easybuypal.com/best/pull-up-bar/ there's a selection of the best there like iron gym etc and you can filter them by things like wide grip, # grip positions and doorway size

    price isnt important, as long as its under ?50

    thanks in advance for any help!

    I don't recommend kipping pull-ups as a pull-up exercise, but if the bar goes though the posts it won't be a problem.

    My findings on the best pull up bar

    Well for anyone who happened to stumble upos this post in their quest to find the best pull up bar I have some information from my quest.Lol.I recently wanted to do P90x and I bought the Iron gym extreme pull up bar.I feel it accomplishes what I want to do with it and works out good.I bought this pull up bar without searching the forums.According to other reputable members on this forum they suggested the Power Bar 2 -amazon.co.uk/Innovation-Fitness-L160-Powerbar-Pull/dp/B00140TJ0M/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top.To make it easier for other people to find the best pull up bar for their needs I created a guide you can check out at pullupbarhq.com.
