So yeah.
Did you know boise is the city of trees?
lol I've got plenty of fun things to do on the trees around here
underbars isnt one of them. lol

right outside my house is a nice little tree strong enough to support me so I just use that for pullups it's free so yea I'm not wasting money on something I dont need. lol.
but of course I do believe it would be fun to get one of those on days I dont want to go in the cold weather, i always end up going out anyways though so it dont matter much to me.

Actually trees are the best for doing pullups i think because it can help to toughen up your hands as opposed to a smooth metal bar or what have you.

If you don't mind spending a little bit of money, my friend found a pull up bar that you install in any doorway almost all the way at the top and you can do pull ups / chin ups with it.

My friends Dad uses it as well and he's 180-200 lbs so it CAN support a good amount of weight. (I dont really expect any Traceurs to be 220+ lbs)

Ya the door gym is very similar if not the same as to what i imagine you are saying. It can install and uninstall easily so you dont have to have it on any one door. it just kinda gets jammed on the top of the frame in a way to keep it stable.

Yup, that is exactly what I am talking about. It leaves just enough room at the top to allow your hands to grasp the bar.
