Monoprice Bike Repair Stand

Just picked one of these up. Less than $30. Haven't used it yet, but looks decent enough to do simple bike repair stuff.

Looks like the one I bought at ALDI last spring for about the same price. ALDI's had a different brand name but I suspect the same manufacturer. Roger

They also have a $10 floor pump with gauge rated at 160psi and a $20 USB rechargeable headlamp, but you can dig out some problems in the reviews, such as effectiveness of the mount and performance in the rain.

I got the floor pump about 6 months ago and it's still working.

I emailed Aldi to ask if/when they would have their stands up for sale. I can't recall which month but either April 1st or May 1st they will have the stands again (I bought a used Park so don't need one).

Thanks, wasn't aware Monoprice sold any bike stuff. Shipping is $12, but no Aldi within nearly a thousand miles of here, so still a good deal probably. I bought a Nashbar Stand-by-Me that's adequate for small repairs, but feel the need to go the next step up while still being cheap.

I have an Aldi stand and that does look very similar, probably uses a lot of the same parts, but mine has 5 legs, not 4. And the paint scheme is different, but of course that's just cosmetic.

I don't think that's possible. Cheap and good are pretty much mutually exclusive.

My Monoprice stereo headphones are sweet! Very odd they sell bike stands.

I've been looking for a cheap stand just for washing. Thanks, I may have to dance at your next wedding for this.

I have one of the Aldi stands. It's serviceable, it's not very heavy. The legs are wide but stable, they are adjustable so you can set it so it's not so wide.
The biggest issue I have with it is that when I clamp by the seatpost, the bike will hang with the front wheel lower than the back. The clamp the should hold it level can't be tightened enough to get it to hold. Plus there are lots of plastic parts so I don't want to give it too much force and break it too soon.
I don't expect it to last as long as a Park stand, but for $30 you can't go wrong for home use.
