I want a bike work stand. I want some degree of portability. Park Tools stuff is awesome, but man...are they proud of their gear!I think I can cobble together something cheaper and more sturdy.
I'll start with this car engine stand inherited from dear old dad.
I figure I could bolt a wall-mounted/bench-mounted bike repair stand to this thing.
Lovely wife gifted me this Bike Hand work stand today. I did my research, and this and the Park Tool were at the top of my list. Good materials, fit and finish, and workmanship. Solid and sturdy.
I would recommend, and I have to say I like it as much as the Park Tool.
