Forget using makeshift materials to prop up your beloved bike. Instead, look to something more substantial and secure, such as the Park Tool Deluxe Bench Mount Repair Stand. This stand mounts to any flat surface, such as a counter top or work bench, instantly transforming your garage, backyard shed, or tool tinkering room into a professional quality bicycle repair space. Solid cast aluminum construction and high quality powder coat finish ensure high levels of durability for long lasting use. Its micro adjustable clamp secures to a wide variety of seatposts and top tubes. Moreover, you'll appreciate the 360 degree rotation for easy access to different components, as well as the clamp's adjustable pressure for use with delicate, thin walled tubes.
