These are great but I picked up mine from Aldi/Lidl for around £30

When did aldi/lidl do them. I must have missed it!
Drat !!!

Dunno why this is cold, 40 quid for a bike stand is bloody cheap. Good find, hot from me!

Never understood the voting system on here.

Heard about these cheap bike stands recently when I got my mtb repaired by mobile mechanic who said he purchased his he was using on ebay for under £50, I never thought to even check on there as I thought you had to spend at least a hundred quid for new so if he uses one they should be decent I reckon. I also read somewhere that 3 legged stands are useless as they tend to tip so 4 like these is better!

People voting cold because they're too thick and can't fix their own bike and would find this useless.

You be surprised how many people can't even fix a puncture.

People voting cold as they have purchased this item cheaper at Aldi and ebay as per peoples posts here!

I've also voted cold as picked up mine at Aldi around £30.00

So I guess you've been thick for not reading peoples reasons for voting cold but instead called people thick where in fact they've not been thick as they just purchased at a better price.

Identical to the £30 stand that Lidl sell every year in their cycle sale.
I have one. It's OK, not fantastic but well worth the price.

Why not, because it doesn't fix your bike too? xD

LOL I do know my way around a bike I'm used to using big Park Tool stands though which are built like tanks!

Once or twice a year, you could ask your local Lidl store if they have any in the stockroom taking space. If you need one this week, then this is a good price.

Park Tools: expensive but like you say built to last, not keen on their overpriced cleaner fluids though.

Their tools are great for professional use but not entirely necessary for the home as the kit can cost a lot of money.

An example is their massive pedal wrench. Someone that takes pride in their own bike and has their own tools, stand etc will more than likely look after their bike well and take their bike apart regularly to clean and maintin, including greasing the pedal threads. A much lesser tool than the Park is more likely to be able to cope with this. It's when you see a bike that's been left in a garden for 10 years and pedals are siezed up when tools like the massive Park wrench come in handy.

The only Park Tool consumable that we use is their grease when it's on offer, oh and things like cutting fluid that lasts ages. Things like chain cleaning devices have their place but I see them as a waste of money as they never clean the chain properly.

Agree. Bought one from Wiggle and with just a few uses started to fall apart and the downside is they just clean the chain. I properly cleaned my bike yesterday with a great result riding and gear changes were really smooth and riding it felt lighter, yes it was full of gunk. Stuff the chain cleaners never ever again!

Personally I prefer chains with powerlinks/missing links (name depends on brand). It makes taking off and replacing the chain so much easier. I stick it in a tray with degreaser for a while then scrub with a toothbrush. Then it goes in a bowl of warm soapy water before being rinsed off then sprayed with a water displacer. Then it's back on the bike and a given proper lubing on the rollers (not getting any lube on the sideplates).
