A Great Gift For the Holidays
The holidays are just around the corner which has all of us thinking about great gifts for our loved ones. One item that comes to mind is a bike repair stand. Bike Repair Stands are great for avid cyclists who enjoy working on or fixing up bikes. A good bike stand will keep that garage full of bikes running smoothly and makes most repair jobs that much easier. Whether you’re looking for a full-on mechanic stand or one that mounts to the wall, there’s something out there for your needs.
Why are Bike Stands Awesome?
Why are bike stands such a great thing to have? Think about something as simple as fixing a flat tire. The bike is held in place as you’re doing it. No more trying to balance the bike upside down on the handlebars. How about trying to align a derailleur? A bike stand allows you to wrench on the bike while it’s hanging in the stand. Trying to do this on the ground is much more tedious and time-consuming. In a bike stand, the job can be done in a matter of minutes.
Our Favorite Stands
Bike stands cost anywhere from $150 and up, and as you go up in price, you will usually be getting sturdier materials and a heavier weight capacity. The benefit of this is being able to work on e-bikes, which can weigh over 50 pounds. Bikeparts.com carries stands from two of the most popular brands, Park Tool and Feedback Sports. Some of our favorites are the 10.2 Home Mechanic Stand and the Pro-Elite Work Stand.
Back in Stock Soon
Due to COVID-19 and the surge in demand for bike-related products, most stands are completely sold out. Luckily, our suppliers are showing bike stands coming back into stock in early December. Keep your eyes peeled on Bikeparts.com for them! If you need ideas for tools to go along with your new bike stand, check out our article on the best bike tools for your at-home kit.
