Stand upgrades

The angle brackets that were on the bike stand bent!!!

I got some 10 x 12 inch shelf brackets from Home Depot yesterday, and moved the old angle brackets to the outside corners - belt and suspenders Smile

I also added another L bracket to the piece of plywood to prevent frames rocking side to side that did not hit.

Great idea Nigel. I'm a firm believer in using your creativity and ingenuity more than your pocket book. Smile
