Default Re: Cheap Bike stand

Some good ideas there. I have some old copper pipe and fittings around and may make up a stand using what I have instead of buying the plastic pipe fittings. I also like the front fork hold down using a spare hub and motor mount. Between the two ideas it would be very secure. A variation on the front hub idea would be to fix the hub to 4x4 scrap post screwed to an 8x8 or so piece of plywood which could then be clamped to the work surface... removable and the post would elevate the front hub to the height it would be if it had a wheel on it. Along with the rear stand it would work well I think. Thanks for sharing, you guys!
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
