What I am looking for as been hard to find, even on the internet. It is an adjustible heighth pullup bar that is built similar to a gymnastic high bar.

The local gym here has one, and they dont even remember where they got it! I want one for hanging rings, but also adjusts lower for regular pullups.

Basically, this is just a pullup bar. However, it is not to be mounted on a wall, but its just a "station." Thanks in advance for any info on where to find one. If all else fails, I might just have one custom made.

Cheers

Roy

Okay, I found one here:

http://www.wolverinesports.com/fitness2.html

A few products down the page. Portable Chinning Bar. Unfortunately, this one wouldn't be high enough to mount rings. I have a pretty tall ceiling, too. The search continues

Cheers

Roy

This adjust up to 9 feet. Not sure how high you would need one. It ain't cheap but the reviews say it's worth the money. Able to withstand quite a load and is easily broken down and set-up.

Guys,
As Matt Gagliardi suggested in another post, this TAPS system may be our next group buy. Keep your eyes open.

Thanks George and I was merely bringing the TAPS to Roy's attention. This may or may not be what he's looking for. Just trying to help his search.

WOW! And I mean that...

$450.00!?!! And I didn't have the nerve to look at the shipping cost. It had darn well better be good.

If you need a portable station, make one that looks like that from 1 1/2" black iron pipe. It's just shy of 2" OD and is (relatively) cheap. Simple and effective. It can be made adjustable with a few holes and a couple bolts.

Sorry if this is harsh - it may very well be worth that money and I could be all wet - but as a home gym kinda guy (read: cheap) that seems like a great DIY project.

Tony,

I agree that is very expensive. Also, its STILL not high enough. The house I'm moving into has a 14-15' ceiling, which is how high I need something like this to adjust for hanging rings(and back down to 9 feet for regular pullups)

Now that I think of it, I might have to just make one. Thanks guys.

Cheers

Roy
