The stands are easy and inexpensive to make.
First, gather the supplies:
1 10' length of 3/4" PVC pipe ($1.64 at the local Home Depot)
6 90 degree elbows ($0.34 / ea, or $2.10 for a contractor's pack of 10)
6 tees ($0.33 / ea, or $2.60 for a contractor's pack of 10)
PVC cement ($4.17)
Next, cut the pipe in the following lengths:
(2) 22 3/4" for the wheel uprights
(2) 12 1/2" for the wheel base
(4) 7" for the base/legs
(5) 1 1/4" splices
I have to apologize at this point, I took several pictures of the assembly process, and none of the pictures turned out - the flash washed out everything so you couldn't see the pictures - and of course I didn't see that the pictures were ruined until after, when the rack was glued together. I drew the assembly process on the white board...
Picasso, I ain't, but with this, and the pictures of the assembled stand, hopefully you can get the idea.
Here is the base, without the uprights.
The uprights can be left un-glued for ease of transportation, if you choose.
The finished product.
I ended up building 3 stands. The stands will support the bicycle by either the front or the rear wheel. The bike in the background? It's my fixie-in-progress. I'm still needing some things, such as cranks, chain, and pedals, but it's coming along.
There you have it! a simple bike stand for around $10.
