Bike Repair Stand

I’ve been using my tailgate bike rack as a repair stand for a while, but was getting sick of needing my Rav-4 to be present.  For $35, I bought a step bumper hitch from Walmart and attached it to the wall of my garage.  Now I have a place to work on bikes when my wife uses the Rav-4, as well as a place to store the stand off the floor.

Thought some might like the relatively inexpensive idea.

    I like that! Seems like a good use for a bike rack when not on the car. Presumably you can have different wall mounts, for different heights?

    I’d think so; but that would mean money for each mount. It would be cheaper if you could set up a way to move the receiver to different positions. Maybe a modification of this idea http://www.simplifiedbuilding.com/blog/building-an-adjustable-height-standing-desk/
