    Do you ghetto?

    Nope, you can't take the trailer park out of the redneck. I rigged this puppy up a couple years ago so I could use my slider as a bike stand. I have plans, but still haven't acquired the Park version; anyone suggest a better one, or do you ghetto too?

    I used to have a ghetto rig too, until my darling wife gave me a Park stand like the one above for Valentine's Day this year. Gotta love surprise gifts!

    Yes....lean them against workbench, pickup truck tailgate, turn it upside down and set it on saddle and bars....need a stand.

    Aka Brad, I like your ghetto setup.

    I've got some rope looped over a beam in the garage. I keep a sort of slip not on it and I usually hang my bikes from the seat or seatpost while making adjustments. I get the job done , but I could use a stand.

    How does ghetto racks "singlefy" the singlespeed people?
