I made a bike stand that was essentially free with stuff I had and the help of a welding friend.

My two car garage is divided by large wooden shelves with one side being the biking, hunting, fishing, beekeeping, fruit tree growing side and the other side being designated for my wife's car.

I attached a steel pipe to the shelving so it could not rotate and would protrude slightly beyond the shelf. I used a large c clamp and had a steel pipe that fit nicely over the other steel pipe welded onto the c clamp. I put a set screw on the pipe so the clamp can be rotated to various angles. Two pieces of angle were welded to the clamp ends to enable clamping the item. I use a thick cloth to protect the clamped section from scratches. It works great but has zero cool factor.
It'll be the last bike stand left at the end of the world (nm).Cory

Heck! That's the way they all looked till this little company named Park tools came around...

Good work!

Watch for scratches.

It looks like the type of stand that someone named "Bigrider" would have!

Your bike will never break down and strand you bacause it knows that if it does, its going to get clamped into that thing again.

I am referring to all the stuff you store in the garage. Suit, veil, smoker, tool bucket, etc. I keep all the frames, hive bodies and supers in another place. Right now I am beeless but may pick up a package in the spring. The mites are killing my interest along with the bees.
So that's what those penis enlargement emails are about! nmdctrofspin
