So on my weekend I decided that trying to work on the bike while balancing it upright with my knees and forehead was getting real old. I drew up some plans for a new workstand and came up with this.
This shows my homemade "wheel keeper-straighter" doodad. Okay, fine, it's just a coat hanger.
It works surprisingly well and is very sturdy. The styrofoam in the 'jaw' keeps the paint from getting scratched and allows me to torque down the jaws so the frame doesn't move around.
Just need to sand it all down and maybe paint it for that ooooooohhhh effect.
So, whaddaya guys think?
