I became interested in doing my own bycycle maintenance and repair on vintage bicycles after I recieved my first bill from the bike shop. The bill came out to twice what the bicycle originally cost me at the thrift store.
I have enjoyed instructables for over a year and have had my eye on the various bike stand designs that have been submitted. Just when I was about to decide on a plan and get to building I had an epiphany. I already had all I needed for a repair stand. No need for another tool that I would then have to store in the crowded garage.
Only three items are needed:
1. Bike rack that fits into a reciever hitch
Its so simple I can not believe I didnt think of it before.
It is surprisingly stable.
