As nice as repair stands are, i dont justify the need for one.

It's fairly rare i need to do much to any of the bikes ive got as they generally stay the same.


BUT, I needed to adjust both the front + rear mechs on the lts and after getting frustrated riding round + trying to adjust at the same time, it dawned on me!

All you need is:!

One large piece of rope and one garage with wooden beams! = happy times!

So I'm not the only one then :) I did once work out a way to clamp the bike upside down in a Workmate but tried it recently and couldn't get it to sit right.

lol. glad to see im not alone either!

to be honest, it worked a treat. Only downside is having to crouch a bit. As long as you keep the front wheel on the floor you're not risking too much!


what a pikey i am
