Pull up bar recommendations?

I've been wanting one, now I'm getting serious about it!  LOL

I'd love one of those door frame ones you don't have to drill in, but can also use on the floor for push ups and tricep dips (with my carpal tunnel, it's easier to do them with bars).

Any recommendations?

Thanks!

Exactly!  There are so many!  I'm looking at a couple on Amazon, but I want to hear from people with experience with them.

Just looked- $60.  Twice what others are going for.  I'm thinking max $30.

We have an over the door one. The BIGGEST CON is if you are not careful you will rip the molding off the door frame. Yup dh did that in our room lol. But as long as you don't kip your pull ups, put more weight than recommended or misuse it you should be fine.

Yeah, I definitely want to be careful about that!  Luckily, the doorframe I'm planning to use is really old (1930s era), and has this VERY secure frame on it.  Fortunately, I'm no longer over the weight limits on the ones I'm seeing! (I sure don't miss worrying about weight limits!!)
