    Lidl repair stand $29.99

    Lidl Grocery has a bike repair stand for $29.99.
    I do not need a home stand but this one is portable. Has anyone seen it or used it? I was wondering if it is serviceable or just too cheap.

    Sounds like it's worth it for $30 if you need an inexpensive stand.

    $30 wow! Too much plastic on it though.

    Yea. That's a pretty common copy or re branded stand that sells on ebay and Amazon for $80-$115.

    For basic maintenance and tune ups, it'd suffice. Especially for $30.

    That's not 29 dollars and 99 cents, it's 29.99 pounds sterling. Still only $37.00

    Lidl in the states is at $29.99; too funny buying bicycle stuff at a grocery store. They usually get the cycling stuff in during the Tour.
    Thanks for finding a review. I am closer to pulling the trigger....

    It does look like a decent enough stand to be worth it.

    I have one of these, works fine with my road bikes but struggles a bit with a 24 lb mtn bike, but like CX says, definitely decent enough for the money.

    Yeah, I looked at that type of cheap stand a few years ago (Amazon, but they're all pretty much the same), but they all looked too flimsy. I have a couple of bikes that would probably be too much for that little stand to handle.

    But, I found that for about $10 more, there were heavier stands available. Still a lot of plastic, but strong enough to hold my old Raleigh cruiser without tipping over. Also, I preferred the style with 2 large legs that lay flat in a "V" formation. So, a stand like this shown here is really only good for when you need a portable stand. If you're looking for an everyday stand, go to Amazon at least and look at your options.

    A stand for under $40.00 bucks, I think is worth a try.

    ... I might even buy one for traveling to events

    Well it turns out, you cannot buy on line, only in person. And when checked, all Lidl stores are out of stock...
