DIY bike repair stand

We love bikes, just check out all our bicycle related entries. Unfortunately, sometimes our bikes break, and when they do it’s a lot easier to repair them if you have a stand. Too expensive? Then make you own bicycle repair stand with a few parts form the hardware store.

I’ve needed a repair stand for a long long long time now. But….damn those things aren’t cheap. Thankfully, I’ve got more than my share of blue collar blood in me….so I decided to build one. The process couldn’t have been easier. I did a quickle google search on home made repair stands and saw some interesting solutions. In the end, I went with my own variation.

  1. The best idea for a home cycling repair stand is to use your bike stand that you attach to the back of your car to transport your bike places. With that said, I’ve always admired the die hard DIY folks who make their own heavy duty ones.

    However you really can’t beat a good manufactured one. I’d stick with Park Tool. My favorite is the PCS-10 Mechanic repair stand. It’s really a great stand. I’ve copied a link to a review below:
