Do you have a stand for storage, cleaning, maintainance?

Postby p1tse » Sat Oct 06, 2012 21:25 pm

Don't actually own a road bike, but family/ friend member is into it and might get into it myself in due course

But do you have a stand for storage, cleaning, maintainance ?

Is there a good, yet cheap option for something to use for cleaning a bike, as a gift idea?

I have one I got from Lidl which was £30 - at that price bracket I think it's awesome. I don't know when their next set of cycling stuff comes out but I'd absolutely recommend it if you can get one, the others are either significantly more expensive, or significantly less useful.

I bought this for £15.99 from amazon.co.uk

It is a great value little stand which lifts the back wheel off the floor so you can do gears, lube, etc., it takes up no room at all and you can cable tie it to the floor to make it impossible to knock over also.

I have one of these:

I got it for £50 in one of their frequent sales, so it's worth keeping an eye open. It's not as sturdy as a heavy duty professional stand but it's fine for home use.

Yes, I have a Park Tools one which bolts through the wall - it enabled a higher bike position than most stands

i knocked up a simple wooden gallows and holder clamp which i attach to my black and decker workmate in the garage. Works fine, cost negligible.

I have just seen a nice 2 bike wall stand in my local Aldi for £29.99.

It has 2 x "top tube" clamps so the bikes are stored horizontely on it. It is quite tall looking (maybe 8 feet tall or so).

i have one of these which i picked up from halfords last year and have a weight on it to keep it up right as it wont stand up without it, and a friend has 1 from lidl and does a lot better job as it is higher and easier to work on the bike.but i am quite happy with the smaller 1 to just hold n store the bike.

Decathlon do a few stands. I bought one for around £50. It's made up of what I can only describe as scaffold poles. Very heavy duty and solid.

Got one of these a couple of weeks ago - great bit of kit for the money and easy to put together/fit (one screw into the wall). As the bikes just "hang" on the two brackets its fine for storage but not ideal for working on as the bike will swing. I am working on making an arm that will attach to the upright and then clamp to the downtube to steaady the bike when working on it but even without this its a great storage solution.

You can buy the Lidl bike stand on Ebay for £40.

I've got one and it's very good - highly recommended!
