    Crank-up stand for 60+ pound (28+ kg) bikes

    As requested, Here's pictures and commentary on the build of my bike stand.

    Rationale: as I am handicapped in multiple senses - clumsiness being but one portion - I need all the help I can get!

    Here's a picture of the bike, prior to its conversion.

    Note that I have a background in machining, and have gone to school for it, albeit many years ago. There are a lot of machined parts in this build.

    1) I first secured the base; and with help, trimmed it to size - 24 × 48, inch measurements. The finish is but on shellac, which is easy to apply, easy to repair, and resistant to dirt and grease.

    The picture shows some of the tools used.

        I have also got a similar stand. Did you already install it dennis_young?! It took me a while until I actually understood how to install it, moreover, taking into consideration that I am really clumsy, just like the author, I could not install it properly. My dad was laughing so hard on me, and you know what... I have actually broken the first stand :D. I had to buy another one. I still remember back when I bough the first stand, I had to look for some calculators and unit converters online, as I had no idea how much is 60 pounds in kg, the shop assistant was laughing the same way as my dad did :D.
