I want to do some maintenance on the rear derailleur of my bike and I want to have the rear wheel lifted off the ground to be able to rotate the pedals to switch gears while doing adjustments.
I'm looking for a hack, so I don't need to go somewhere to hang my bike or buy a work-stand like shown on the photo below.
In this case I have the gear shifter round the steer with he indicator facing upwards, see photo below. Putting the bike upside down makes it hard to shift gears and I cannot read the gear position from the indicator.
So, putting it upside down is not the answer for me.
To nail it down more: I want to lift the rear axis of my bike, block the wheels, keep it stable and be able to rotate the pedals.
