I've been looking for a workstand, but they're pretty pricey, so been waiting for just such an offer to come up at either Lidl or Aldi. Thanks for the heads up.

I got one of these when they were last in store - very stable, a good weight and easly to use.

Tapered tubes need a bit of packing to grip solidly... I use thick 'pipe-lagging'.

I bought one from Lidl 2 years ago. I think it's brilliant for the money, Hafords do one for £99.99 but doesn't look any better. I've not used any other stand so I can't compare. I was happy using my turbo trainer to adjust gears or just turning the bike upside down, on the floor or on my Black and Decker - I only decided to buy a stand 'cos it looked a great buy for the money. I would not have spent much more....

This seems like a good buy - it's really sturdy, those four legs aren't going anywhere. Agreed about a bit of lagging for the tube clamp, and the widget for holding the handlebars in place seems like a bit of an afterthought, but overall really pleased with it.

This is happening again! Just grabbed one for 30 quid. Bear in mind it's a heavy and bulky bugger, so is a bit of an arse to get home if you're on your bike.

Also,
