There are quite a few low priced stands on eBay, but I have no idea if any are stable enough
to really work.
Hi hbob, The other day I bought one of those stationary trainers that you set your bike in to pedal indoors. It occurred to me as I was setting it up that it would work pretty good as a bike stand too if I wanted. This particular one was quite a bit more than a hundred bucks, but there were three models where I bought mine anywhere from $159 to $299. I just happened to hit a 30% off sale so I bought the spendy one.
It'll cost a little more, but you'll get more than one kind of use out of it, so maybe you can justify a little extra money.
