    Try searching. We just had a thread resurrected yesterday.

    For < $100 - a QR fork mount screwed to a 4x4.

    IMHO any stand that costs < $100 will be a waste of money.

    Buy a feedback sports sprint stand and be done with it for the next 20 or so years.

    You missed the Aldi workstand sale by a week or two...Maybe your local Aldi still has them for $30.

    never knew that Aldi was anything more than food. In any case, our local Aldi is 45 mins away.

    Throw a rope over a rafter in the garage or a tree branch. Secure. Make a loop in rope. Hook nose of saddle to rope. Adjust length of rope so the front tire (or both tires for that matter) hits the ground, or something else, to keep the bike from spinning when you lube. Infinitely adjustable height!

    That's pretty much free. Works in a pinch.

    Bench mount stands are available in the 50-100 range for budget units. REI has a park for $117. If you have room and, well, a bench, that might be an option. Complete units for 100 I would suggest avoiding, as a general rule.
    .
    Stout beers under trees, please.

    that's pretty much how I winter the bike in the shed, except bungees. I do have a bike hoist I never put up. Hmmmm.

    Yup...for $30 it is a killer deal:

    Not quite as nice as say a Park PCS10...but for 1/5th the price who can complain. Sell a bunch of bike related stuff:

    I've been using the Bikehand Pro for about 4 years now. It does everything I need. I actually use it now to store my main bike and as a result I'm much more likely to do minor maintenance/cleaning.

    I used one of these Y-stands for many years. I suppose if you have a carbon fiber bike with a gargantuan downtube, it may not work.

    I've also had a Bikehand Y-type stand for a few years, and it works great, and is 1/2 the price of a Park workstand.

    Even though I have a Park stand, I frequently crank out the moving end of my Wilton vise and hang the nose of the seat over the ram of the front jaw. Better yet, all of my tools and any parts that I'm working on are right there on my work bench. You can do the same thing with a 2x4 or piece of pipe.
