The workstand and truing stand, we have. We were just lacking the incredible set of tools.

BTW, Joy hasn't tried on the work apron yet, but I'm very excited for when she does...

Sweet!

Also very glad you like the apron. I already have one with my nickname on it. The big tire lever wasn't needed either since I have strong hands and steel levers, but I thought it might be handy if you have a tough tire. Those and a few other items came with a big set I bought for opening the shop.

I would've included a Park blue book, but search their site for tool usage if you're wondering what they're for.

I put my rear tire on my road bike a couple days ago. This is a process that takes between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the luck I'm having. Let me tell you, I would have killed for a big tire lever.

I donned the shop apron this afternoon and fixed Matt's bike for him.

Yeah, she swapped cranks on my bike, then discovered the bike was still having the same problem, fixed it, and then swapped cranks back. Really. I was there in a supervisory capacity only.

Can I just tell you how much I love this woman?

I think you two have the same repair stand as mine.

I see the beer bottles are open in the second pic.

They were open prior to beginning repairs.

WB, Should I take that first tool picture to mean that Park's cable cutters are now an acceptable tool (those look different from the last set I saw), or that you don't have a QBP account for Shimano ones?
