HANDLEBAR JACK BIKE STAND REVIEW

Tech features:

The Handlebar Jack is a bike stand designed to hold your bike upside down. A pair of tripods with padded cradles attach to the bars with a Velcro strap. The jacks fold up for storage and can be extended by 1/2 inch with extenders if additional clearance is needed. They also offer a saddle cover called the Saddle Jack ($30) that protects the saddle when you flip the bike on its back.

 


Shop test results:

We will admit to being skeptical when we first saw the Handlebar Jack. Then, as we worked on heavy electric mountain bikes, the idea of not lifting the bike off the ground started to make more sense. The Handlebar Jack works as intended, protecting brake levers and displays when working on the bike upside down, and is surprisingly stable. One drawback to doing it this way is retraining your brain to turn the pedals the right way. Certain tasks like adjusting shifting are more difficult, and you can’t bleed the brakes, but for simple tasks like washing, lubing the chain and swapping pedals or tires, the Handlebar Jack is a great alternative to bike stands for those who can’t lift heavier bikes like eMTBs.

• Easy to use
• Nice on your back

• Service limitations
