    Vintage Repair Stand?

    I finally got a repair stand! $50 off CL. the seller told me it was about 15 years old, and an Easton brand, which I hadn't heard of. the powder coat is recent. Has anyone seen one of these before?

    easton? it looks alot like the old Blackburn from the early '90s. I liked mine but always thought is would be better if I filled the feet with sand or concrete to make is a bit more stable


    OH I made a typo. my blackburn is long gone I forgot to take when I sold my store . my bontrager is OK but could be a bit taller

    true though the sand bags would be a good idea.

    Put lead shot in it and some Frame Saver. Prevent it from rusting.

    Filling the feet with concrete, sand or lead shot might make it harder for you to move it. Just place a sandbag over each foot; that should help considerably.

    I have one of these Blackburn stands also, it's not bad. You just have to remember not to lean a bike against it when it's unloaded, it will tip backwards at the mere suggestion... The sandbag will fix that too though.

    Sandbags sound good. Its lightness is a big advantage. And Blackburn I've heard of- their racks are awesome.
