Bike work stands for comfortable repairs
From oiling the chain to adjusting the gears or brakes, if the bike is securely fixed, you can work comfortably and use both hands. Even when using a minimalist floor stand that attaches to the rear triangle, the bike is usually much more stable than without. Ideally, though, you'll look for a two-, three- or four-legged stand. Clamped around the top tube or at the seat post, the bike hangs at an optimal working height and allows you to work from all angles. When folded, the stands usually take up hardly any space. Look for a clamp that can be rotated as freely as possible to lock the bike, quick-release fasteners for easy operation and possibly a tool tray that can be retrofitted to have the tools you need quickly at hand.
