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).
