    Really dumb N00b question

    Im just recently getting back into cycling and I have a really dumb question. I am in the process of restoring a 1991 Panasonic DX-1000 that I picked up on Craigslist for $50. Its a road bike and has no kick stand (standard fare and accurate for the function of the bike). Rather than leaning it up against the wall or hanging it from a rack of some sort, I need a way to park it in my garage in a bike rack. Here is my question... In the pic below,what is the name of the black, mini bike rack thing that the back tire is sitting in? I need a name so I know what to ask for. Thanks

    Here's a nice sturdy stand. I have made tons of these for friends.

    Personally I like the simple hook that hangs it on the wall. It gets it up off the ground and out of your way. Downside is you can't easily move it around.

    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.
