Introduction: Quck and Easy Bicycle Repair Stand

Picture of 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 actually used my work mate in a similar fashion but it certainly isn't a nice as yours.

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!!
