There seem to be loads in the £30-£40 range, this for example.... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bike-Stand-Bi ... 4857d12b6c

Anyone know if any of them are any good, it won't be getting tons of use?

Aha, thank you! I'd forgotten I'd posted this up, you've just reminded me I was going to order one! :facepalm:

That looks very similar, I think I'll go for something like that with the tripod type legs, should do the job....

Check Lidl, they do a fairly good stand for about £25 occasionally.

I got one of these the other week.

Very impressed for the price and the free postage only took a couple of days. Someone said they're like the Lidl ones.
To be honest I can not fault it in any way for the money. :xmas-cool:

It's here! :D

To be fair, for the money it's a bargain, not sure I would want to use it every day for heavy full sussers, and a few things creaked when I put my little GT up on it, but with a quick bit of bolts tightening and a little fettling, it is a good buy I reckon.
