Introduction: Bicycle Repair Stand #2 (Portable)

This is a stand supported by a 35 lb cast iron stand used for an 10' wide umbrella.  It's more than ample to support a bike for repair.

Step 1:

This is the shorter pvc extension.

Step 2:

This is the taller pvc extension.

Step 3:

Bar clamp holds bike bar, this detail was covered in my previous instructable.

Step 4:

Slope bar attachment

Step 5:

Another view of slope bar attachment.  This configuration allows for sloping the bike to any ange.

Step 6:

Using alternate top attachment for slope or vertical bars.

Step 7:

All components for stand.

Step 8:

The base & steel tube attached to base for support.

Step 9:

Base & tube tilted over for view the bolt attachment to steel tube - this is the umbrella stand as purchased from retailer.  The rust has no structural value.

    Cool. That makes sense. Must have missed it the first time. Thanks!

    Please list materials needed including exact sizes of PVC pipe used, diameter of pipe (cut lengths, clamp materials, etc..)

    Material list & Clamp I can help with - what base will you use, this design starts with a heavy base which can accept pvc post.
    Clamp design info is included in my past postings. Hope this is of some help.

    If I build one, I would use heavy cast iron umbrella base that should connect to PVC pipe with a little tinkering. I'm looking for exact sizes of PVC pipes used (cut lengths, diameter, etc..) I will look at your other posts for your clamp design.

    Great bike stand. Please list materials needed including sizes of PVC pipe used. What kind of clamp do I use to hold bike top tube? Would rather buy affordable clamp rather than make one (unless making one is easy).
