8 user comments
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.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice...

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.

Well I splashed out too and I am surprised by the quality...very good.
My 'widget thing' to stabilise the wheel/ bars was missing though
Well with a 3 year guarantee..... I sent them an email on the Thurs night...
got a 'sorry' email back from Germany within an hour.
Saturday morning UPS on the door step with the part.
Can't complain about that...!!!!

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.
