Re: 24" vertical poles on a DIY pull up bar?

My bar is held together by 2x6.. BIG lag screws into the studs behind the wall and ceiling. Distributes the weight quite nicely.

I also agree on the 12" headroom. That's what I have and it's more than enough for regular pullups.

Overall, I've had my bar for a few months and it's been rock solid. No movement, even with myself and 2 other people on other parts of the bar.

Hope this helps.
