I've got a minoura one, does the job but it can tip if you take the back wheel off and leave the front on. Park tools make some nice ones that bolt to the floor but they are not cheap.

Ditto the Mioura one.

The tipping isn't a problem with bikes under 30lbs generally unless your forks weigh the same as a small moon.

I got one of these for buttons, I think it was about 6 plus the 10 postage and I am very pleased with it, why not have a look at them, the only thing I'd be carefull of is if your frame is oversize tubing, it's fine for me though Wink

If the link doesn't work here is the item no. 350152329457


They usually have loads so you should be able to pick one up really cheap.

I've tried the SJS one but couldn't get on with it. I now have one like this:-

Front wheel has to come out but holds the bike better than the SJS one. About 35 from Whiskers, IIRC.
