Lidl Bike Repair Stand mini Review…….£29.99 this week (pics)
So unlike the chap who umm’d, ahh’d and finaly left muttering about Park Tool in my local Lidl I did fork out and chance my luck with the £30 stand seen on their website here<
To summarise it is worth the money…but you may be taking advantage of the 3 year warranty (which is pretty decent to be fair)…especially if you have a fat bike fetish!
-4 leg stand spreads wide so is very stable even at full extension.
-It extends really tall! Which is great if you are like me.
-It also folds up back to the size of the box it came in and doesn’t weigh anything ridiculous.
-Call me Shirley but I quite like the thin bit of extendable pipe with rubber straps either end which is included to hold the bars straight/still while you work….handy.
-However if you behave like a gent and treat her gently you should be ok, I bodged mine with a couple of washers from a headset press just to take some of the pressure off:
-The tray mount is designed for the thicker lower half of the post (not ideal if you are 4ft+ but easily fixed with a bit of inner tube…plus marks for the (albeit small) magnetic strip:
In short I think well worth the money and will handle all your home bodging, however if you are a pro or a bit particular look for something more bespoke.
