As the title really.

About to buy a Specialized Levo Comp or Expert.

I want to be able to take it outside on the drive to use it to rinse and dry etc, as well as use it as a stand when I put it in the spare room.

Just needs to be properly stable even when up in the air

So what are you using, links would be great ;)

I use the FJM folding stand (stainless so no rust when using it for washing my bike) for everyday bike stand and for all maintenance. I know there's a benefit to standing when working on a bike but heaving 47 pounds onto a 5 foot high stand isn't my cup-o-tea!

I'm a caveman... I use a piece of pipe, clamped onto my workbench vice and jutting out far enough for me to hang the front of my saddle over (the pipe is covered with a thick layer of electrical vinyl tape).

For outdoor washing, I flip my bike upside down - bar grips and saddle forming a tripod. I can clearly see and gently brush away with a hose all the mud or dirt caked on the underside.

Been looking for a proper bike stand to gift myself for Christmas, but I can't find anything I like. Might have to build a custom one... just sniffing out new ideas in the meantime...

I think I will probably go for a seat post clamp style of stand so I can get it up on the air more for taking the motor cover off to clean and dry it

I don't really have that option, as my workshop is full of Supra parts lol

Excuse the mess

If your budget will stretch to it get a Kestrel work stand, I managed to find one second hand on eBay. It’s absolutely rock solid, 24 kg is no problem at all and no fear of any plastic bits failing if your pushing / pulling stuff about.

Aldi £20 for me. The stand looks the same as the halford one. The key problem, for holding my Surge, is that it doesn’t quite hold at an angle as it’s not strong enough.

I’m going to stick with it for the moment though.
