Attaching a Wall-Mount Bike Repair Stand to our RV


This post may contain affiliate links, meaning we get a commisson if you decide to make a purchase through them. There is no addtional cost to you.

When you do a lot of riding like us, you quickly learn the value of bike repair stands. And not just for repairs — bike stands even make things like washing your bike much easier, or things like lubing the chain, swapping pedals, etc. Number One has limited space, so I’ve been thinking about solutions for a bike stand we can use on RV trips; one that won’t take much space and will get the job done. I had even bought one that had a portable floor stand, but it was just too big.  The video below shows how I finally solved this. I took a wall-mount bike repair stand and built a mount for it on Number One’s ladder. The stand easily slips in to the mount when I want to use it, and then stores away in the gear garage when it’s not in use.

We share quite a few of my smaller mods like this on our social media channels, but I know many of you aren’t into social media (like me). So, Stef and I are going to try to do better about bringing the potentially useful shares we make on social media here to our website, starting with this one. Feel free to ask questions or leave comments below!

      In many of your videos and articles you mention you 3D print parts.
      I’ve tried to search your site to find what printer you have, but couldn’t find it.
      Please tell me brand/model or send a link.
      Hubby is interested in a 3D printer and I know you research a lot before purchasing anything!
      Thanks!

        What a fun question!
        This is the printer I’m using. The FlashForge Creator Pro https://amzn.to/3XCMftc
        It’s held up well for me, so I can recommend it.
        When I was shopping 3D printers, I wasn’t looking for the cheapest. Or the one with the most features.
        Solid – Easy to learn with – Value… That was my mindset.
        Also – I generally print utilitarian parts. Not figurines or jewelry or anything like that. People looking to print those kinds of things may have different criteria than I do.

        Best of luck, and I hope he loves the printer!

          Thanks! We will definitely look into that one. He wants it mostly for the types of things you do and it sounds like your considerations are in line with his.
          I so appreciate you taking time to reply!
