I've always wanted to use the "dogs ate my homework", I mean knocked my bike off the stand and bent the handlebars story.

My story is usually, man you went down hard! Are you ok? Damn you bent the bars too!

I own up to my bashes and bruises. That's what you get for using some skimpy bucket as your stand in a garage with virtually no space.

Not so much anymore. Darn thing got bent up pretty bad falling off the stand because I forgot to kick it up when the bike was on the bucket. Boo! I bent it so it kind of works but definitely the mount is jacked up.

Those 5 gallon plastic bucket will let you down. They look good then one side starts to collapse then over she goes. I was just lucky enough to be working on the bike and caught it happening. Go to Harbor Freight and get a steel stand for 25 bucks.

This is the bucket I use..
Sturdy AF and won't let you down unless you put your bike on it crooked like I did.


These are thick buckets...
