Looking for inexpensive repair bike stand. Recommendation needed

I purchased the inexpensive Spin Doctor repair stand and it is worthless. It will not hold my P2C. I am looking to return and buy another repair stand. Looking for recommendation. Not really will to spend more than $130 or so. Hopefully something cheaper. It is for occasional work but I need it to actually hold my bike.

I also would like to find some inexpensive holder for a bike when not using. Not for repair but just hold the bike.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Search the forums. There have been several DIY stands posted.
My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

I think BikeIsalnd sells a stand for about $100. I have no personal experience with that stand, but it's about the cheapest price I've seen for a full-function, floor mounted stand.

You can get a bench or wall mounted bike stand clamp for about $60.

If you buy an inexpensive stand you end up buying a more expensive one until you get the most expensive one.

Save yourself the trouble and just buy the best one off the bat. Seriously. Stands are not a place where you want to cheap out.

^^^ agreed, and if you buy one, it will probably be the last one you will ever need to buy. That said, I purchased a Wrench Force stand from my LBS for just over $150. It is sturdy and has all the features of the more famous brands
