Introduction: The Deluxe Cheaper Than Cheap Bike Stand

Picture of The Deluxe Cheaper Than Cheap Bike Stand

This is an upgraded version of the "cheaper than cheap" bike stand instructable I made. "https://www.instructables.com/id/Cheaper-than-cheap-bike-stand-1/"

Its the same idea, but instead of nails, I put some hooks on a clothes stand I found at a yard sale.  The hooks can be sourced from any hardware store.  They can't be more than a few bucks apiece.   Just get a pair thats a bit bigger than the seat stays of your bike.

I can't remember where I got the stand.  I think it used to be a stand to hang clothes on at a store.  I can't remember how much it cost, but being the cheap kind of guy I am, I'm sure  I wouldn't pay more than a few bucks.  I bought it because it's legs fold away so I can carry it with me when I go riding in far away places.  It had an upper part to hang clothes.  This is easily removed with a hacksaw. 

Attach the hooks as shown and its set to go.  I also slid a couple hunks of tubing onto the hooks  to protect the finish on my bike.
