Introduction: Yet Another Bicycle Repair Stand

Picture of Yet Another Bicycle Repair Stand

Here we go with yet another bicycle repair stand. Most of the ideas here have been done before, and posted on the web. For example, using a weight bench as the stand base has been done. As you would expect, a weight bench makes a good, stable base.

I have just a couple ideas to add; here they are: 1) I used vice-grips for the bike frame clamps; 2) I made a front wheel guide to keep the front wheel in line. That's pretty much it. The pictures tell the story.
