I’ve messed around with home made stands for use when away at races in the van. Holding it through the crank is a pain and a floor mounted one dosent allow gear setup easily. One of the sponsors of the Nutcracker series OdPod, has a neat stand on display there.
Brilliant, just what we need, and I like to support the guys who support us, so I bought one, and it was £5 cheaper at the race. It is very light, easy to stow away, supports the bike with either wheel removed, and allows full crank rotations, perfect. ODPOD Oh and supports the bike brilliantly while you hose it down too.
