    I probably would have assembled it outside the store and mounted the bike on it and carried it all home like a battle standard to let those cars know how the war is going.

    Default Bicycle Work Stand deal

    As of 7pm there are 6 left at the Aldi in S. Alexandria on Route 1. There were 7 there but now one is living in my garage, destined to be a bike wash stand.

    They're kinda hidden and not really obvious unless you're looking for them, but they're there in the middle like mello yellow said...along with some other seriously weird stuff.

    I bought one on Friday at the Aldi's on Duke St in Alexandria. They had several left. I showed it to a friend yesterday and he planned to go buy one as well. Thanks for posting this!

    @ 7-ish remain at the Aldi near Seminary & 395 in (West) Alexandria.

    And yes, what a strange store....

    Picked one up at the Seminary/Kenmore/Van Dorn Aldi this evening (now there are 3 left). It's heavier than expected, but I managed to get it home by resting one part of the box on my handlebars and another part on my left knee/arm, switching between the two whether I had to brake/steer or pedal. Luckily I live only a mile from that Aldi.

    Built it, and I'm surprised by the solid and decent quality ($30 is a steal). Pics of the setup follow (mind the mess; that part of my apartment is next on the list for spring cleaning).
