Over the past decade, brands have made significant improvements in increasing output and reducing the weight of their bike lights.

Bike Stands

Bike stands are one of the most functional outdoor amenities, whether you are meeting the needs of university students or you want to add bike parking outside of your business. Most bike repairs have a stand welded frame that holds the bike in place. This tool is useful, so the bike doesn’t move or tip when you work on it. The stand lifts the motorcycle from the ground to a level that is comfortable for you in its service. If you always have to keep the bike in place, it can affect the quality of the work done on your bike. If you do your daily work on your bike then bike stands are not a repair option, they are a necessity.

There are several different types of bike stands:

Clamping Stands

This type of stand is a very popular style. This stand is useful because it holds the frame and holds the motorcycle in place. Typically, the clamping stand is attached to the upper tube or directly to the seat post. Some extremely light frames do not have an area that can be closed.

Bottom Bracket Stand

This kind of stance is a more professional approach; It is used in all races and competitions. This stand does not attach the bike to any type of frame. Instead, the frame rests on a stand that allows the cyclist to reach each section without having to turn or turn.

Both of these types of stands come in permanent and portable designs, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The type of stand you choose depends on what type of cyclist you are and where you work on your bike as usual.

Unless you have a workplace for your bike, chances are you’ll want a portable stand. The portable stand can be taken with you so you can work on the flight in case of an accident, and it can be packed and traveled much easily.

A permanent stand is for serious cyclists who work often, and they have a place of work where they can leave the stand. This type of stand is ideal for high performance work as it is safe up to the floor, but it is not practical if you are not working on bicycles often.

DIY Bike Repair Stand

If you don’t want to buy a pre-built bicycle workstation, you can always make one that works for you. Creating a bike workstation from the start gives you the freedom to design exactly the way you want it and includes all the qualities you need. There are several ways you can make your own repair stand, but here are a few examples:

l PVC Pipe Stand – Using PVC piping you can easily connect the pipes to the stand that suits you. The great thing about it is that it is very easy to unload and rearrange for different bikes.

l Wall Mounted Rack – You can easily hang your bike on the pipes by attaching a few pipes to the roots of your wall.

l Tripod  – Attach a few pipes with a strong tripod. Use fasteners to clamp the frame and hold it in place.
