The United Kindom’s Rimpact, a tire insert company, has released The Stand, a minimalistic, lightweight, and highly portable bicycle work stand, making it a “breeze” to work on your bike anywhere. Or just use it to hold your bike while you sit there and stare at it… I do that sometimes.

Folding and storing The Stand is easy and requires zero tools. Folding flat in mere seconds, it allows you to stow it in your vehicle or in your shop at home taking up minimal space.

The Stand’s slight angles help with stability.

Contacting the ground in three distinct ways, The Stand looks stable enough to wrench on your steed wherever you may be. Its unique design gives it a slight lean at the base and the mounting axis is tilted slightly in the opposite direction.

The Stand holds the bike by the center of the crank, lifting only the rear wheel, allowing you to still spin the cranks for adjustments and lube your chain. It goes into your crank arms so you can do a pre-ride prep or post-ride cleaning. The Stand can be used on bikes with either Shimano or SRAM cranks with a hollow spindle (not suitable for eBikes).

Each stand is handmade in the UK by designed Dan Hicks and made of 6082 Aluminum and 304 Stainless Steel. They use roller bearings in the head with IGUS Polymer bushings in the folding arms. These features will make for a strong, durable, and corrosion-resistant work stand. The bearings at the head set it apart from other similar BB-mount stands and is what lets the cranks spin freely enough to make adjustments.

The Stand Retail & Compatibility

The Stand retails for $93 USD

It comes with your choice of crank adaptor size, either 20mm (Shimano Hollow Tech ll) or 18mm (SRAM Cranks, Raceface Turbines & and Shimano (but less stable).

Note: Cranks that have any kind of cap or closed bolt on the crank spindle, are not compatible.

If you are unsure, Rimpact says to measure the internal diameter of your crank spindle as well as the depth, you’ll need at least 18mm ID and a depth of 80mm. The two choices of available adaptors are machined at slightly less than 20mm and 18mm for ease of fitment.

If you have any questions or need to confirm fitment, reach out to Rimpact here.

Just put your bike upside down. I don’t do it because I’m a snooty patooty but it’s really the best way to do it.

Putting the bike upside down can allow air bubbles to move up away from the levers, including to the calipers

Upside down chain lubing also drips lube all over your frame.

Hey Ron, glad it’s not just me that will sit and stare at my bike.
