Kubla Khan, can you tell me who makes the repair stand? That's kind of cool ;-)

Oh, yeah ..... In the kitchen.

Looks to me like a Nashbar.

I bought a couple for myself when they were on sale for like $15. Money well spent, they work great!

That particular one is an el cheapo Performance mini stand. I bought it because a real stand won't really fit in my apartment, however it's a POS, so if you have the room and the money, I suggest buying a real stand (it's worth it).

Some of you look pretty hooked up in terms of tools/equipment. Not too shabby

That's some pretty sweet MTB artwork in the second pic.

You look like you're getting max use out of that relatively small space.

Thanks! I have a Park PCS-4 which I can recommend highly. I use it in a pretty cramped kitchen and it folds flat (but still pretty big). It would fit under a bed. I like your little mini stand as it looks nice to throw in the car and take along for some unscheduled work out on a trip.
