The Ultimate Rakk Integrated Bicycle Display System is way, way cool. My LBS uses these as handy display devices and after I saw one I just had to have it. Forget hanging your bike, either by the front wheel or under the top tube, the Rakk stand parks that baby right now, no fuss. Check it out!

Gee, radical dude!

They teach you this crap in Marketing school?

Actually a much cheaper alternative is something i bought for storing my tandem. Slide the rear wheel in and it holds the bike up no problem. It's called the Grand Stand and it costs $20. But gosh, I wouldn't call it "way cool".

Boy, aren't we sensitive. No spam, just sharing. I thought these were cool and it's not like you were personally e-mailed. This is a community board and I'm not in the bike accessories business.

Lean your bike against the wall, damnit!
I found the clamp to be annoying...biknben

I borrowed one from a friend a couple months ago.

I would hold the bike up and grab the dial and push it in. Instead of the clamp closing on the seat post the whole stand moved. It seemed like you had to turn the dial to some imaginary point and then it would open and close. It gave me trouble. For over $200, I wouldn't give it the time of day.

The Park clamp seems pretty easy though. It's way, way cooler. :-)
No, it's the Rakk floor stand!! Not the work stand.Breakfast

Unless you feel like you are being spammed. In that case, nevermind. Sheeesh!!!
