What is the best bike stand for simply holding a bike upright?

I'd like to get something to hold my bike so I don't have to lean it against something. I'm not talking about a work stand (I have one of those), just something pretty compact to hold/store a bike.

I'm willing to pay for a quality stand that is well built and will last. Thoughts?

Who makes it? What do they call it? Where'd you get it?

how much room ya got? a lbs can order you anything from a small version of those racks you see at schools that will hold several bikes (sportrack valet) to ones that just hold the rear wheel (minoura ds10, willworx, delta rothko, gear up grandstand, dimension) to 'clip-on' kind that elevate the rear wheel and make a tripod w/ the front wheel (minoura ds20, dimension). there are all kinds out there

make it yourself, plenty of free plans on the net...

if you use PVC, all it takes is a little cutting and gluing

I was thinking along the lines of this.....simple and relatively inexpensive

Is there something better out there?


kinda avg... you can adjust the width for mtn or road bikes, but if you have a long cage rear der or if you leave it in the biggest cogs the side of the rack may hit the rear der... not a huge deal. it's not the most stable however, esp on an uneven surface (particularly applicable to mtn bike on grass or dirt). ok for the price

Overkill, inelegant and costly.

I've got a couple of these and they do the job. No complaints.
I've got one of those and I like it. The wheels make it easy to move the bike around.

personally i like the ultimate's, but have since moved to these rubber dipped metal things - these are made by 'sinz' or something like that. i know cannondale rebrands them. anyways, pics x 1000 words.

I use my Ultimate a lot. I even take it with me in the car when I do non-local rides for easy parking before and after. It is great. Well built too.

The ultimate RAKK is great, I own three and for minor maint. issues
they work just fine. They have never dropped a bike on me! But, they
are hard to find these days.
