Kind of depends on your needs and available space.

I picked up one of these (made by Body-Solid). I've seen them priced anywhere from $65-100+. MSRP is $79.00 according to the manufacturer's webiste.

I like it because it is one of the few doorway pull-up bars that actually extends above the doorframe. So while not optimal, at least (at 5'8") I don't have to bend my knees too much.

One downside of this design is that the two sides slide together, so there is a lip where the tubing slides together. Hasn't been a real problem for me so far.

It is suprisingly sturdy (the way it slides together, it is stronger with a narrower door frame). The hardware that came with it was also good stuff...no stripped out screws and that sort of thing.
