Opportunistic Work Stand

As it happened, on my first day back on the bike this spring, I hit a rock and it caused a pinch flat on the rear. After getting the bike pulled to a stop, I started looking for a suitable (safe, flat, and clean) place to lay down the bike. I found, much to my surprise, a nearby “opportunistic work stand.” The work stand made this flat one of the quickest and easiest ever to repair. My hands still got dirty but the stand held the bike steady as I removed and put on the wheel. Try it for yourself when you have your next, inevitable flat.
