I use a kayak lift system when I need to get my bike off the ground. I can raise it however high I need it and for most things, including cleaning, it works great. It was pretty inexpensive and easy to install in my garage. I raise the hooks out of the way when I don't need it. However I would like to see someone come up with a center stand that could be placed in the space behind the motor at the fender spacer/chain stay area. Not permanently attached to the bike but something you could use in the garage to securely keep the bike upright and allow the removal of the front or rear wheel in case of a flat. I am sure that many of you who do your own work found out the hard way just how heavy the rear wheel assembly is on bikes with the envolio hub. DR

ModernBIKE.com carries this stand. It is called a FeedBack sports Pro-Elite. I have been using it to work with the Rush/City Speed. It can handle the bike to some degree. I mention that caveat, because the clasp that is used to adjust the height of the bicycle being supported, slides down to its lowest setting when suspending the Rush/City Speed. Otherwise, it is a good stand that is strong and light weight When not in use, it folds up and stows neatly in a carrying case.

The Bikehand stand came a few days ago, and it's a winner. It is heavy duty. I got the bike up and secured, took off the rear wheel, got a new heavy duty tube installed, put the wheel back on. Good to go again. Got the bike cleaned up like new while up on the stand. It folded up nice, then stashed it in the garage.

I also use the Feedback stand. I use it as a lever to lift the bike:

Set the stand with one leg pointing forward (parallel to the bike, next to front wheel).

Loosen up the seat post jaws, and the spinning knurled knob, and unlatch the quick release on the main stand body.

Lean the stand towards the back of the bike (so the forward leg rises in the air) until you can fit the jaws around the seat post. Squeeze the jaws to grab the seat post. Tghten the knurled knob a bit.

then push the top end if the stand forwards so all 3 stand legs are on the floor. The bike rises off the floor. The front wheel will probably point down towards the floor.

loosen the knurled knob while pulling up on the front wheel, then retighten when the front wheel is high enough.

I ran over a damn thorn on my last ride...at least I got home before it went flat. It had to be the rear tire. 馃槨 Can anyone recommend a good heavy-duty bike stand for repairs?
Check with the sportscrafter. They are coming up with such a stand. Besides, consider installing protection such aas Tannus Armor. Fixing flats and changing tire & tube is a headache with e-bikes. Actually whole bicycle industry is heading towards like of an automobile industry, where fixing at home is becoming difficult.
