I had to get a decent lift-stand if I wanted to continue my own working-on-bikes stuff, I’m fed-up with low-squats and bending over – things that torque my L2-L3 vertebrae and works the minor scoliosis.
Riding itself is fantastically good for bad backs, strengthening the stomach muscles and giving an overall good cardio-aerobic workout and shaking up the arms – but working on bikes is the opposite. Being all cranked-over and twisted around bent, especially when applying force usually has negative results. Just doing the damn air filter is a pain, let alone the axle pinch-bolts or any normal maintenance type things. So I got this garage-bling lift-stand thing to bring the work up to me. It’s hot.
