Bike Repair Wood Stand

Made from scraps : my bike stand. For ideas only

Step 1: Basic Design

No plans: let's go with some feelings, and keep in mind that simpler is better.
The base beam needs to be heavier enought. My stand is approx 20kg/44lb.

Step 2: Add Some Strenght

Do not forget to add some pieces to the main frame.

Step 3: Finishing

Some foam warped in an old inner tube to protect the bike's frame.
A strap to tight the front wheel.

    What kind of bike is that? I've been doing 30-40 miles daily and my current bike isn't supporting it.

    Nice! I like it. Saves money. Those bike stands are really expensive. I'll have to make me one.

    Have you thought of not making the thing so heavy, but making the base wider? Like those support beams could be much lower. Have you tried that or does it not work because the lower the base the center of gravity is lower, which means that the whole stand will be overall balanced?

    As I explain in intro I've made my stand from leftovers. There're the unused hevea pieces from my second flor stairs, I've not realy the choice for the sizes, it still works great.

    Can you rotate the peddles without hitting the stand, for truing the rear wheel, adjusting the derailleurs or lubing the chain?

    Yep it was the first reason I build it. The upper beam needs to long enought to rotate pedals. Beam lenght = 2 pedals width + bearing cage + 10cm margin.
