It wasn't a hint but a direct request: I needed a bike stand for repairs, tired of putting the bike upside down, or laying on its side as I bend over while crouching on the dirty garage floor. So I send my money to St Paul, Minnesota and on Christmas day put it together. A few days later I used it to install fenders, two months into the six month rainy season, better late than never.
The bike on the hoist is my wife's as is the one seen in the background, up the "garage tunnel" that leads to the house. Hanging vertically on the far left is my spare bike, currently in need of a new rear derailleur--sounds like a job for SuperStand.
