I have one and love it. Great value. My father in law was kind enough to schlep it back from Chicago.

Super! I've been checking my Aldo's since Feb...hopefully they'll have them in now. I want one to take with me to out of town rides (without risking my higher priced unit I now have). Cheers!

I just picked one up last night after reading about them on this forum. I was tempted to grab two of them. They have all sorts of bike stuff in the ad this week. Cheap basic computers, locks, bags and a multi-tool. June goes for the groceries and I go for the gadgets!

I was just there yesterday, didn't even look.
If I ask, they'll look at me like I'm from outer space.

I'm all over their .99 salsa (the Pumpkin Chipotle and the Double Roasted) and their .99 chips that are basically Tostidos for less than 1/3 the price.

So far, after more than several attempts, I've found two beers I like there. (I'm trying to be thorough.)

Sale starts Wednesday here.

So far, the Imperium lager is OK.
The Monterrey I did not like.
I may check out a couple of Asheville beers they have this week.

Ive had one of these stands for about 3 years going now and haven't had one single issue.

Besida the grips slipping out but its a quick crazy glue fix to keep them in place.

Great choice if you'd prefer not to spend much on a work stand.

Checked my local Aldi's yesterday and no bike stands

Bought tortillas so I didn't look like I was doing anything too suspicious.

I purchased a bike stand from ALDI last year. It's well made. The bike is secure and stable enough for most tasks. However, it won't remain totally rigid if you but a large torque on the bike.

I went to Aldi yesterday and when I asked a worker, he said he has not yet seen them this year. The link the OP posted says Wednesday May 16 so I plan to check back.

Gut German owned company. Great value for Belgian confectionary, cookies.

The workstand does the job. Though when I see lower end tools (harbor freightish) I collect my thoughts to buying high end used for the same money, often less.

Actually, with most stands, unless you have it bolted down to a heavy work bench or the floor, the bike will tend to still move around, if you do really high torque stuff like installing a tight fitting headset......

Five collapsible legs, height and rotational adjustments, quick clamp, handlebar rod, and a small tool caddy.
Definitely a great value for the money.
