    bike repair stand $29.99 shipped.

    Yes there are lots of nicer stands , and I wouldn't trade mine in for this, but for someone on a very limited budget this seems like a good option.

    Thx! I am on a limited budget and this beats working with my bike upside down.

    How bad is this? I too would like to be liberated from the upside bike and back pain style of repair work.

    Some pretty detailed reviews of its faults on Amazon. Check out the 1-star ones. Here are some hightlights:

    The Bad:
    - Only fits a certain type of down tubes, ones that does not have cable, bottle cage, etc.
    - Cheap metal.
    - Not collapsable. You basically have to take it apart for storage.

    The Good:
    - Sturdy
    - Low price.

    I had one of these 20+ years ago, surprised this design is still around.

    Clamp is quite weak has limited adjustability, if you're not careful it will scratch your frame. Might be a good idea to wrap the clamp and the other parts that come into contact with the bike with electrical or duct tape.
