    Best Homemade Bicycle Stand -for the Front Range

    Just read this on bicycling--
    Build a Repair Stand: Bicycling DIY Tips | Bicycling Magazine

    Looks like a decent homemade stand. Who out there has one like this? Pics.

    I never made a homemade stand, but I used to make my own energy bars back when there was only one or two flavors of powerbar.

    Love the homemade stuff

    The seatpost clamp makes things a bit difficult in the days of the dropper, no? Even w/ rubber jaws on the clamps of a commercial stand, I still get a bit nervous throwing a Reverb in there, let alone a couple of blocks of jimmy-rigged wood...
    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.

    Hook and rope and hang by nose of saddle, works good enough for me at least. With funky shaped frame tubes and dropper posts the old repair stand doesn't get used much these days, except with my cross bike.

    My homemade repair stand isn't 100% homemade, as the clamp is a Park professional bench mount. But I did fabricate a floor stand similar to the one above for it. I used a 3' dia circle of 3/4" plywood instead of the square base shown above. It allows you to wheel the stand around the shop instead of having to drag it. I still mostly just hang the bike from the seat for quick jobs though.
