There was another thread about this (use the search!).

I don't remember where to buy them, but are you sure that it'll work? Most doorways in Taiwan do not have trim, which is necessary for the pull-up bar to rest on and support your weight.

I have one, but I got it from Australia because I was having the same problem (finding one, then finding one at a decent price).

MPenguin: I'm not sure what you mean exactly. The one I have screws into the frame (wood or masonry) of the door. You have to drill three holes on either side and then there's a kind of cap with three holes that you attach to each side. You then wind the bar out until it touches the the edge inside each cap. I don't know what the upper weight limit is on these, but I do weighted pull ups for a total weight of over 90kg.
