Question about the Terminator Stand

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

 It probably does not come as a surprise to any of you that I'm more eager to entertain my friends on the ski slopes than in my dining room.  So........during the winter months, I have the terminator stand set up in my dining room with any excess wall space covered with skis.  In fact, I take photos off a couple walls to make room for my toys. 

 

You can imagine the look on my Mother-in-law's face on her occasional visit. It is not a look of approval. 

 

 

Now that ski season is winding down, I want to pursue the possibilities of using my Terminator when I work on my bike.  Ya think I'm off base on this?

 What does your husband think?   Does he work on sportscars in the den?

Seems like all The Terminator needs to handle bikes would be a simple attachment going straight up from the center of the stand that culminates in a clamp to hold on to your bikes. Though that might be a little high height-wise unless it grabbed on to the top tube as opposed to the top tube. We'll want to see pics when you're done modding it out!

Surely you didn't think your Terminator Stand and Cinch vise were for skis only?

 

 

 

 

 

A base block with grooves would be a better option. (I was in a hurry. )

 

 

Strap is optional.

 

 

I'll send you the fork mount and cam clamp. It's simple and works great. The mount and vise slide as needed.

My husband thinks? Who knew 

Don't get me started on the truing stand for his motorcycle wheels that sits in the living room. 

 

 

Alpinord, if you're going to send me the attachments, then by all means, put some liquid wax and some purple solid wax in too.  I'll shoot you a cc #.  Thanks!

 

Phil, your set up is pretty cool!

 Change of season bump......time to turn the ski tuning stand into a bike stand......

Not to disparage everyone's cleverness in adapting their ski stand for bike use real bike workstands aren't that pricey, I found a Performance one on Craigslist for $50 last year, and they do so much more. Even new you can find decent ones for not much over $100.

That bike setup is really cool.  I'm going to mention it to the guy who designed and distributes the Terminator the next time I'm in his shop in Calgary for tuning supplies.  I doubt he's considered designing and marketing a bike adapter.

Rick's head is always spinning with ideas. Definitely stop by and strongly suggest the bike adapter idea.
