The Original Handlebar Jack might just be the most compact and clever way to quickly repair your bicycle at home or out on the trail. It’s a simple concept, consisting of a pair of small plastic tripods, which attach to your handlebars with rubber straps – providing a secure base for upside-down wrenching.
The Original Handlebar Jack bicycle repair stand
A good bicycle repair stand is an invaluable tool in the life of a serious cyclist. Today, we share a very portable and very non-traditional take – The Original Handlebar Jack. The patent-pending design is a pair of plastic tripods weighing only 3.2 ounces, and measuring 6″ in length when stored.
Small rubber straps secure the tripods to your bike, and lift the handlebars 3.25″ off the ground, providing clearance for lights, computers, or other accessories (so they aren’t bearing the weight of your bike – a heavy consideration for e-bikes weighing 50 lbs or more). They’re currently made in small batches via 3D printing, with plans to move to injection molding as sales volume increases.
The Original Handlebar Jack is available now for $39.99. Each kit includes a pair of jacks, two medium-length rubber straps, and two long rubber straps.
