Review: Od Designs TrackStand
Back in 2013, I reviewed the OdPod Portable Bike Stand; it is a great little tripod stand, which is ideal for stowing in the boot of your car, and doing those last-minute pre-event bike tweaks. The TrackStand is British based Od Design's latest invention, and is designed to overcome the conundrum of where to lean your bike at events, or for storage.
Resting your bike against your car, garage wall or paint pot shelf, is unlikely to end well. Scuffs, scratches or worse could well result. Having a proper bike stand, which supports the bike on soft plastic holders, is far more sensible.
The TrackStand is simple, yet functional; supporting the bike very well on the chain stay and seat stay. To aid transport of the stand, the stabilising feet fold in and upright stand folds down; creating a compact package. The plastic holders, which are paint-work friendly, are also adjustable to different sizes of bike. Finally, you can actually clip together multiple TrackStands, creating a pro-look team bike rack.
Simple, yet effective. No more scratched top-tubes, damaged saddles or scuffed bar tape. A great bit of British design.
