So did I and am similarly happy. If you wait until their next sale you may be able to get it for £60. I think they usually have one around May Day.Gerry Attrick said:I recently bought a Revolution stand from Edinburg Cycle Co-op. Its a great bit of kit for just under £70. It even happily supports my old winter hack which weighs in at over 30lb!
Well, its an ancient Dawes Shadow, completely standard including steel rims. I reckon its made from scaffold tube, but what the heck, it works, it gives me a workout and no-one wants to nick it from outside the pub.domtyler said:Is it made from lead?
certain stands are made for different types of bikes and how and where they are held, some are also Carbon friendly and won't crush a carbon tube when clamped in. Some really good pricy stands come with a magentic pot, and a set of precise scales to weigh your bike.domtyler said:Surely a workstand is just a workstand no? It just holds the bike up in the air. I wouldn't worry too much about upgrading to a carbon or titanium one particularly.
