If you want to work on your bike at home, whether that be in your kitchen or workshop, you need a work stand. Bike work stands make maintaining your bike so easy you’ll wonder how you ever coped without one. By holding your bike aloft you gain better access to hard to reach areas of your bike and save yourself from a bad back in the process.
Many work stands are packed with useful features like rotating heads and tool trays, so you can be sure your bike will be in just the right place and stay there securely, while your tools are never more than a short reach away. Bike maintenance stands are usually height adjustable, so you can always get the bike positioned just so, which can help when performing tasks such as a brake bleed or when installing a bottom bracket. If you work on your own bike and don’t have a bike work stand, now is the time to change that. You won’t regret it.
