FOR SALE! Bike stands (Purchase & pick up at the show)

Made in the 'Furniture Capital of the World', in nearby High Point, NC, using mahogany veneer bases in combination with Delta rolling racks. As shown below, they can be broken down and easily carried in a suitcase or in box for shipping a bicycle. The steel loops to hold the wheel are very secure. The wood patterns and grains vary from stand to stand.  The white BAMF sticker is removable with a hair drier. These are all handmade and some may have minor blemishes from use at the BAMF show, first come first serve. The components to convert back to a rolling rack are included. Reserve yours now
