I got a perfectly ok stand from halford for about £12 – use it for storing the bike in the garage and light jobs like cleaning/changing brake pads etcPosted 5 years ago
display stand – never thought of that MM
dont need it for maintenance as i have a workstand, just looking for something slim/lightweight i can bung in the car to use to stand it upright whilst cleaning – done it a few times with front wheel off thinking it would stay upright and its fallen to the floor with a big bang scratching old frame…Posted 5 years agobigGMember

Why don’t you just put the bike upside down – then you can spin the wheels and drive when cleaning – also discourages water from entering your fork seals if your using a hose pipe.
burn the heretic.. don’t you know that every time you turn your bike upside down a kitten dies?Posted 5 years agoHarry_the_SpiderSubscriber

I am going to say OD-POD as well!
I picked one up at the Nat CX Champs at the weekend.
I was think of getting a Andy stand but with it on the drive side I think it can be a pain if you want to turn the cranks, on the drive side for tweaks and cleaning.
The only thing I say is the stand might not work well with bikes with press fit BB, (but I believe they working on it)
stavromuller, if you where at the champs it was nice to talk to you.Posted 5 years ago
I use a display stand, ok it takes up a bit of room in the car, but it’s much better than kicking the bike round on the floor when getting ready / washing up. But, without fail, i forget it’s under the bike, lock the car, put the keys in my camelback, take the bike off the stand and go, “bugger” should have put that in the car first…….

Got myself an OD-POD from company called OD designs
I bought one as well – but as the seller is in the forum I will say that the mounting for the BB needs to be more stable – maybe wider – as it is a bit unstable and only really suitable for a display stand at the moment.
I have a topeak tune up stand dx – I think the current is the ride-up – which is pretty good for cleaning as the rear wheel is raised.

cheers guys for the input and advice – mulletus maximus and maxtorque between you cheers spot on for me what you have recommended!
ive got a pro display stand (shimano i think) saved at lbs….it looks perfect for me, be better if it folded somehow, but for purely standing it up and being able to wash it without leaning against car, or if i take the front wheel off it falling over and scratching in the wind its perfect!
nice one, and pretty cheap really too at 15quid!Posted 5 years ago
