Redesigned for the Summer of 2021 this DIY recumbent trike repair kit provides you with everything you need to get your recumbent repair stand project moving. If you're comfortable making a trip to the lumber store, cutting, and drilling wood, this kit may be right for you.
You supply the 2X4 board and the kit supplies the following:
- DIY user guide
- 14 inch aluminum uprights with attached rubber cradles
- All metal hardware: 6 U-bolts, backing plates, and nuts
- Drilling transfer template for adjustable post locations
- Right angle brackets with self drilling screws
- Securing bungee and hook
NEW SUMMER 2021 - No more plastic brackets, we've updated to all metal connection hardware!
How much weight can the DIY trike stand hold?
We designed our CNC cut TimberTable to hold the weight of all pedal powered recumbent tadpole trikes on the market today! The TimberLessTable utilizes the same metal hardware kit and components.
I just received your TimberLess Table. The parts are as described,, pipe edges properly rounded (no sharp edges or burrs). The stand is more than sufficient to support my 50 lb. recumbent trike. Had I purchased the parts separately, the cost (with shipping and/or fuel (to pick up parts) would have been about as much as I paid for the kit (I checked!), but it would have taken much more time and additional effort to buy and build. This is a very good deal. Thank you D
Thank you, we’ve given it our best effort!
The concept is good, but I suggest you furnish the three aluminum uprights with six simple U bolts sized to work with 2x4s instead of the fragile plastic tube holders. That would turn a shaky work stand into one which will stand up to the forces exerted on it during a tire change. Most of us have only one trike to work on so don't worry about it being easy to change positions of the uprights. I like the heavy gauge wall thickness of the uprights by the way. They work well with my U bolts. U bolts can be loosened if the uprights need to be rotated a little.
Suggestions incorporated! Thank you!!
I like the stand assembly was easy .it will do the job I will be creating braces.It wiggles under the weight of the trike. I wish the mounts for the tubes were metal.the plastic will fail over time its thin.
Thank you, we're glad you like your stand and assembly went well! For increased stiffness you can add some additional screws once your final position is decided. If you do experience a failure please let us know and we'll be happy to help.
I was very pleased with the delivery and the quality. The quality of th components is first class and they assemble easily. I made my work stand to fit in my Black and Decker Workmate and hold our Catrike 559s and it can be seen at the at the Carriage House Cycleworks Facebook page. I am very pleased.
Mark, thank you! Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2021 and good luck with the off-season trike maintenance.
Assembling the stand was straight forward. Carriage House Cycleworks was helpful with the placement of the back support point on my Catrike 559. I mounted my stand on a wooden sawhorse from Lowe's and its super stable. Overall, good customer service and once the order was placed the package arrived quickly.
Thank you, David. We're so happy you are up and running with your trike workstand!
