How to build a pull-up bar between concrete pillars?

Oh, might I add, Kenguru Pro specifically said that their 'freestyle' bars longer than 1800mm are full steel rods. If this provides more flexibility, this might be preferable in their case as freestyle calisthenics requires a lot of movement and the flexibility of the bar actually helps generate movement of the athlete. This might be why this is true in their case rather than a physics reason of whether it's correct or not in terms of flexibility. It depends on the bars purpose, of course.

I have contacted Kenguru regarding the pipe/rod discussion to hear their thoughts. Un-sure if they will elaborate on this but I will respond here if they do.

For anyone else reading, here are details of pipes/rods it seems: https://www.austubemills.com.au/getattachment/0e64af4a-852a-41f2-bfa3-57abb28af9e7/atm-dct-sshs-aug1...

Still, I am not intelligent enough to decode this long document so I have emailed them directly and will respond with this as well if I get a relevant response.

Response from Kenguru directly regarding this matter:

"Not less than 3,2mm (inner pipe wall)

Regarding the steel rods- for bars longer than 1,8m it works better than the pipe."
