I promise that I don't work for this company but I just picked up a brand new stand off of e bay for £40 posted. Its the first stand that I have owned so cannot compare this to anything else but I must say that I'm impressed with what I received especially for the money. It is foldable, sturdy, a good weight, fully adjustable and has a cool magnetic tray for all your tools and nuts/bolts etc. if anybody is interested I can take a few snaps of mine and send you the e bay details.

I just got one of these last week, and the only reason I haven't posted about it yet is because I'm waiting for the catch. You know, for the rivets to snap or to find out the tubes are really made of rolled up cardboard.

But, so far it has been absolutely superb, and I cannot believe what a bargain it is.

Any ebay links?

They're more useful when people have bought them and are happy.

I'm guessing it's this one:

Could do with one myself really.

Yeh, it's the same stand but the guy I bought mine from was from kr bikes in tewkesbury. £34 + £6 postage. He is not on e bay at the mo so must have sold out.

Been waiting over a year for Lidl one. Got the Toolkit (it's been round twice since I bought mine) but no stands...

Mine came from KR bikes as well.

Not seen the Lidl stands, although I did just get one of the tool kits.

I've had one of these for a few months, certainly makes bike maintenance easier. It's hard to get the clamps tight enough to keep the bike in the position you want at times, but overall for the price I think they're very good.
