Looking for a decent repair stand

I am looking for an affordable stand to hold my bike while I adjust it and do minor repairs. It doesn't even have to hold it very high, I just want it to be steady. Thanks

you can get one from park tools. they start out pretty cheap and go up in price depending on what model you get. I bought one for $80 and it works just fine, has a nice rubber padded clamp and spins 360 degrees

IMHO as a bike mechanic, get the Spin Doctor G3.

around 200 bucks, it stands up to some serious abuse.

If you want something really cheap, the SPin Doctor essential is the stand I use at home. Costs about 60 bucks, enales you to get the bike up off the ground abour 3 feet. Well worth the money, I use it almost everyday.

Nashbar has their own brand for $89 that looks pretty nice and adjustable.

But I'm highly thinking of the park PCS-10 at jenson with free shipping.

Cool!

I built this for nothing (had the Pony clamp already):






But seriously, shadesy, Ultimate makes some good consumer-grade stands (although I prefer the Pro-Classic if I were to buy one for myself):

stand

Park Consumer Stand.Mine is 10 years old and still works like the day I bought it.Use it all the time.And with a few friends with bikes,I mean all the time.I friend got the newer version which is even better.But then he paid more.One of the best things about a portable bike stands is being able to put it out in real sun light.or if the weather is bad,I put it up in the family room.Unless you know how to do carpet(I'm a x-carpet installer)just put down a tarp,cardboard,old blanket or something.What I'm saying is my bike stand is at hand and I wouldn't know what to do without it.
