Bike Stand

Used to be able to get a simple stand from my LBS, 2 legs under the BB and a hook that wrapped over the down tube. They used them in the showroom, but it's great at the Track for gear changes. Lost some stuff moving and cant find these anywhere. Help?

Yea, that would be the high tech version. There is a simpler one out there.

I've always heard it called a "Y-stand"

Here's one:

You can probably get an unbranded one cheaper at a bike shop.
