anyone own/ever use one of these things? i don't have anywhere to do pullups/chinups in my apartment and due to differences with the landlord would rather not screw or bolt anything into the door frame. just wondering if there were any thoughts and if this really works like rich franklin swears it does; it doesn't seem like it's all that sturdy and i'd rather not waste the 30 bucks.

also, the whole "dip" option is seemingly pointless since your range of motion is like 4 inches off the ground.

Is money an object? Newyork barbell sells a tds pullup / dip station for I think 200 for low clearance ceilings. It has a regular dip handles and a wide pullup bar. I love it. I wear the dip belt and rep out like that. Best money I have spent. That doorway shit is ghetto.

On the blackberry but I'll link that shit up when I get home.

This is it here... I wanted a full chinning stand and it was the only one i could find to work with a 7' basement ceiling. It's pretty sturdy for the money. Took like 30 minutes to put together. I paid $199 for it. It is listing right now for $229. My only gripe is that the dipping handles don't flare out into a V for targeting chest but I guess you can't have everything.

I'm 5'8 200lbs and it suits me well. You do have to bend your knees to pull up but I'd imagine you'd have to do that with most indoor pull up units.

this is very similar to an apparatus we have where i train. really can't beat the price and it would fit perfect in the corner of my basement...i'm gonna sleep on it, but ultimately i think i'll be buying this tomorrow.

i just don't really trust the reviews on websites for the no-need-for-screws, removable, doorway style pull up/chin bars and because i live in an apartment i can't really just go bolting shit into the walls. good call on this, i appreciate it.

My friend has an Iron Gym that he likes a lot. I've never tried it, but he says it works fine. He is like 130lbs, but I don't think extra weight would make any difference. If anything it might make it hold better.
