Australian Mountain Bike - - Between The Tape -

If you have the space, a work­bench and work­stand will be next on your wish­list. Hav­ing a ded­i­cated flat area where you can pull apart hubs, brakes and more is end­lessly use­ful. You might choose to use a tool wall, or a tool box. Ei­ther way, get­ting a sta­ble work­stand com­pletes the pic­ture. The Feed­back Sports Por Elite work­stand with carry bag is close to $490. You can get a more ba­sic model for un­der $250, and the height, sta­bil­ity, and com­pact size when packed up makes them a favourite. Park Tool and Pro have sim­i­lar of­fer­ings.

If you build a work­bench, and plan your tool stor­age, think about what you need fre­quent ac­cess to - and what you don’t need so of­ten. I have some of my most used tools out on a wall, with a com­bi­na­tion of hooks, and the Su­per B mag­netic rack, which keeps the most es­sen­tial tools close to hand.
