You don’t need to cart your bike off to a professional for each and every repair. But if you’re going to be doing some fixes at home, it will be a lot easier with a good bike stand. There’s a reason that no full-time workshops are without one!
Even the simplest undertaking becomes that much more of a challenge without a workshop stand. They allow you to suspend your machine in mid-air, letting you work on it unfettered and without having to prop it up against anything or manually turn it upside down.
The Park Tool Workshop Stands at Bike Addict have been a firm favourite with cyclists for some time now. The cam-type clamps they feature suit a range of tubes and you can adjust the pressure. Varying heights are easily accommodated by quick-release mechanisms and the stable base reduces the chance of anything toppling over.
The PCS 4, 9.2, and 10.2 Deluxe Home Mechanic Stands are very popular with South African cyclists thanks to their quick-to-use clamping adjustments and generally strong brackets. We also have a Park Tool Team Issue Portable Repair Stand so you can attend to any necessary repairs on the road and then there’s the ES-1. This multi-purpose, stable, versatile rack can hold as many as six machines by the saddle’s nose.
Consider the folding size of the stand you’re interested in if space is a factor and make sure you can make the height adjustments you need to. Take the maximum weight limits of the stand into account as well and you’ll be able to get your bike into whatever position you need to get the task done.
