Press Release: RedSide Custom Tools

The MTB Helping Hand is an all-new, original bike tool that allows any rider to keep their bike standing steady and safely at the trailhead. The bike's grip is placed into the tool’s handle slot and the tool holds the bike vertical and still, regardless of hilly or flat terrain.

The standard protocol without the MTB Helping Hand.
The Soft Silicon Backing allows anyone to have a hands-free standing bike and protected paint.

Right now, at the trailhead or parking lot, adjusting your bike configurations, brake-levers, seat post height, or really doing anything to your bike is a complete nightmare. Unless you brought your whole shop work-stand, dealing with your bike at the trailhead is frustrating. Everyone does a poor job trying to work on their bike while holding it. We all know the guy with the scratches all over their car from leaning their bike against it. Maybe you simply flip your bike upside-down in the spot next to you. But with this, you rub your grips and saddle raw on the dirt and gravel. You can awkwardly squat down to lube your chain, but you still can't really check or adjust your fork air pressure. In addition, If you don't have a whole campsite and a car pulls up attempting to park in the spot your bike is resting, you have to move your bike while halfway through tuning it.

The Tool Would Scratch Your Car's Paint? Right? No

Why the MTB Helping Hand is a Portable Bike Stand and Won't Scratch Your Car

• Because of the powerful rare-earth magnets and resistant shape, this tool very sturdily holds your bike standing, hands-free, ready for anything.
• It allows you to lean your bike against your car while protecting both your bike and your car with the soft, silicon backing.
• Instead of awkwardly holding your bike while lubing your chain before a ride, you have a third hand holding your bike, or a... helping hand you could say.
• The MTB Helping Hand has allen wrench and bit slots. So while you're adjusting your bike, all of your tools are kept within arm's reach away.
• The MTB Helping Hand is made out of special plastic called Polylactide. This plastic is extremely sturdy, durable, light-weight, biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable.
• This tool is less than 6 inches (15 cm) long and weighs less than 0.3 lbs (122 grams). Meaning it's hand-held and extremely portable for wherever you ride!
• The MTB Helping Hand stays on even when driving at freeway speeds! I'm talking 100+ kmh (60+mph). Yet despite this, it easily and conveniently dismounts from a direct pull.

The MTB Helping hand is only sold in Black and Red, priced at $28.99 with Free Shipping in the United States. Worldwide shipping is offered with a shipping flat rate of $14.00. For any questions, email to Emails will be answered within 24 hours.

 I find that is I lay my bike down it's impossible for it to fall down...I know mind-blowing!

 And the entire ground is free with + free shipping to wherever you are.

I might buy one, just in case i ever ride somewhere where this is no ground. Plus you could make that for yourself with a drill and a block of wood.

 Stick the bike's rear wheel into the car's wheel well.

 @the-one1 but then when you sit in the car to get changed the arch squeezes the shit out of your rear wheel

 I always lean it with the rear wheel against something. It’s the only way the bike doesn’t fall and is 1000% quicker setup than pulling this thing out of the cab or trunk every time.

 April fools? This is silliest product I've seen here in a while. Kudos for using your 3D printer @brianpark (we know its you)

 I guess it would be better if it was injection molded plastic from some random Chinese factory, plastic is plastic. Support small companies ran by actual mountain bikers trying to grow the stoke! Jus' sayn...

 @sweat4it: it's silly because who the heck would ever use it...?? It's the most useless and ridiculous thing I've ever seen pitched as an MTB product.

Just lean your bike over....

 Surely it only works on a flat car park? Otherwise the bike will roll forwards or backwards, the bars will turn and the bike falls initial the car again. I much prefer the folding stands that go into the hole in the crank axle. Which are also useful for bike washing. Without spraying mud all over the car

 This assumes I give a shite about my POS vehicle or don’t have a bike rack that allows the bike to stand up on the ground or rack without scratching the already scratches in my vehicles 19 yr old paint.

 Hey. First time caller. Long time listener. *Caution* The content presented is for mature audiences and discretion is advised. Please read with caution. So here it goes...
As a new E-Bike customer (NO I am not a Dentist and I didn't buy the new Yeti EeB) I am quite annoyed with the fact that you can't back pedal the bike to lube the chain in the field without the aid of a bike stand or friend. I understand why and how the motor mechanism functions to minimize drag when coasting.
I am sure it's quite comical watching two middle-aged EeB'rs holding each others bikes up off the ground lubing the chains Big Grin
So if somebody is listening please make a product that will hold my bike up for me so I can lube my E-Bike chain at the trailhead without help. Make sure it's expensive too otherwise Dentists won't buy it.

 Something like this ? I saw this on Sam Pilgrim's channel awhile back.

 Not really sure about all the negativity about this product. Lots of people have nice cars, and they tend to thoughtlessly lean their bike on their car. If that's you, buy it - if its not - don't. This product isn't meant to change the sport... its a plastic stocking-stuffer for the 'hard to buy for' mountain biker who probably works a full time job & drives a car he worked hard for. Just my two cents....maybe 3, lol

 Pedal on a rock or curb works well and some people will think you are some kind of gravity wizard.

 What I use my rack for, if at the car. Trailside would be of more use, if I carried tools, that is.

 Put helmet under pedal.
Helmet can’t fall.
