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.


    • Just look at the demo bike. When 20% of the bike weight is wiring harness and brake levers, the next logical step is handlebar jack stands.

  1. Just one thing… Under no circumstances press your brake levels with the bike inverted if you’ve got hydraulic brakes. You will risk getting air from the reservoir in the lines.

    • Your brakes are a closed circuit, if you cycle your brakes inverted tand they fade there was air In your system to begin with. If your brakes are bleed correctly and functioning right it shouldnt matter if you cycle your brakes upside down.

      • Er, no. They’re not as closed circuit as you think, def not some kind of ferule induced vacuum, and there is always some air in the system. There has to be some kind of reservoir/space for expansion and contraction, mostly relating to heat. These are often on a bladder system that is not impervious to gravity; some brakes, when activated upside down allow air from the bladder side into the rest of the system. Etc.

        • The diaphragm in almost all circuit brakes is to compensate for fluid expansion , not air in the system. Once again there should be no air in any closed circuit brakes system(shimano and all sram brakes). If you have air in your system it’s a poor bleed and not intended.
