Tubing's too big for my repair stand

So it was time to improvise....



....with a vinyl coated security cable...


...and a soft nylon rope...


Don't laugh, this setup gave me access all around the bike and worked out
better than using the repair stand....this time anyway.

Happy Trails

Nice. I've tied my bent up in the air before to work on it, but not so elegantly.
