Need help finding bike stand(7 posts)

Need help finding bike standkushogun

Good evening ladies and gents. I was needing some help in finding a bike stand. Not something like a Park work stand, but a stand that sits low to the ground and basically craddles the back wheel, holding the bike upright. I'm sick of leaning the bike against a wall or keeping it mounted on the trainer as the base of the Cycleops is rather space consuming. I know these exist because I have seen them in the photo gallery section on this website. I know my description seems somewhat vague, but if anyone knows what i'm talking about and where to get one and perhaps how much they may cost, than any and all info would be greatly appreciated. Hope eveyone is gearing up for some great early spring racing!!! Keep the rubber side down!

I've purchased heavy-duty stands from a LBS for our deck. They're used all over town as permanent bike stands in front of stores. They assemble into multi-bike stands using 1" (I think) galvanized pipe.

Nashbar has this on sale right now:

I've seen some similar ones at LBSs. Some (like REI's) look pretty lame, but every LBS I've been to lately has some solution.

You can also make one out of PVC pipe and fittings.
Rivendell's got somemicha

I got one from my LBS. They use them as a display stand for the bikes on the showroom floor. One advantage is that, in a pinch, you can use them to do minor repairs as the rear wheel sits off the floor and the cranks turn freely.
