    Home Depot used to carry a wall-mount tip up bicycle stand, but they discontinued it (probably sold too many).

    A new Lowes opened here recently, and they have these in stock in their "Home Organization" section.

    These mount into the wall (a stud preferred) and fold down when you want to store, or lube or adjust or pull a wheel or whatever. Your bike top tube simply sits on the extended rubber-covered arms. No, they are not as good as a bike stand, but they are a heck of a lot cheaper. I use my two all the time.

    Good for us "non-mechanic" types, at least!

    They are not specifically labeled bike stands, but have a picture of a bike in storage on their packaging.

    I have the Home Depot wall-mount, which I use to 'park' my bike and do minor work. It is quite good. For the other stuff I have a Park PCS-4, which is great for major repair work.

    Is this it? http://www.lowes.com/lkn?action=prod...00000923-FSR13

    That's pretty cool. I wouldn't have thought to use it as a stand. Thanks.

    Yes - but why did they choose a Huffy?

    I also have one of those in my office where I keep my roadbike during "the offseason" and when I'm not using it to remind me that I need to knock off work and go riding. Although admittedly I've not been hanging up my bike as much anymore.

    I picked up a pair of those at Lowes a few months back. I use them in the garage to store the 2 mountain bikes, but they come in handy for making quick adjustments. For bigger jobs, I have a repair stand in my 'workshop' in the corner of the study.

    You can't beat the price, though. Seem pretty sturdy too.

    Yeah... I took that picture right after I came home (walking) following a high-speed (40+ MPH) rear tyre blowout. Luckily I was going straight and luckily it was the rear. I pulled the tyre off, hung the bike up and was about to head off for the bikeshop to get a new set of tyres. You can see my innertube hanging off the left hood. Both tyres had already seen about 4000 miles although the front tyre was in pretty decent shape. Of course, as luck would have it, this happened in later October and the shop was out of stock on the tyres I wanted (Conti GP3000s) but they gave me a loaner tyre (in orange ) to use for the week until the new shipment came in.

    Yes... but mainly I'm doing it by sitting in the cabin of a 737. I'm no longer IFR current and even my VFR currency is about to lapse. Part of it is the expense (have you seen what they're charging for wet-time lately?)... the other part is finding the time. Oh well, I always have my bike. What I'd like to do is plan a nice fly-and-bike trip somewhere. I'd mix in both road and mountain biking if I did that.

    I had one of these before i ever had a bike. I used it for hanging a stroller. Now I have two bikes and two of these racks. They work great and are one of the biggest bangs for the buck you will ever get.

    They aren't terribly heavy duty so you can't get too wild with them but they do work.

    I recall an article ca '00 about cost of ownership for a $40k plane bought over several yrs assuming interest, hangar, insurance, oil, gas, standard maintenance and budgeted maintenance etc: worked
    out to $100-110/hour for 200hrs/yr. Since 9-11 and Iraq it is probably $150-180/hr. You have to really want to go some where to justify that. And a $40k plane is not much for a plane, even 40+ yrs old.
