Simple & effective, we have here a bike stand from NoLimits, a UK based company offering products aimed at the racers among us.
Sometimes someone brings a product to your attention which makes you take a second look. I for one frequently want to stand the bike up after a run to do some basic work without dropping it on the ground or having to carry a full work stand around. Something small and simple would be ideal, so when I was offered a stand from NoLimits to use, I immediately grabbed it. The NoLimits stand is very similar to that which you will find in use by most of your local bike stores to display their bikes but this has a few subtle differences.Words: Alasdair MacLennan, Pics: Ian MacLennan
Firstly, this has no issue holding 2.5” tyres and also has wider feet to give it stability on the rough ground that tends to make up the parking at most venues. And just to make doubly sure it’s solid, there are also holes which allow it to be pegged down. Since getting hold of this I find myself using it more and more when working on the bike, from those simple bits of maintenance between runs to pressure washing the muck off at the end of the day. Handy for keeping the bike out of the way when storing it too.
Made in the UK from steel, it should stay looking good thanks to tough black powder coating and price wise comes in at £25 which seems pretty good value just now. They’re also available in a slightly narrower 2.35” version which is more suitable for BMX’s and 4x bikes whilst there are wall hangers for the workshop and, for the teams out there, a large A-Frame is currently being prototyped. If you’re at any of the UK NPS races this year then you will be able to take a look at them in the flesh in the MSC team pits while the NoLimits guys should also be on hand along with some of their other products should you want to have a chat.
