Introduction: Quck and Easy Bicycle Repair Stand

This instructable details how to assemble an simple, durable, and functional bicycle repair stand by repurposing other items you may  already have.

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
2.  Workmate
3.  Clamp

Its so simple I can not believe I didnt think of it before.

It is surprisingly stable.

I'd this all the time while attach to the car. Pull up a chair turn on the radio. Work repairing last trip or get it set for the next ride. Help that tool box is in the trunk!!
