I think it cost me $10-15 and there is room to put a couple other things in addition to an iPad.

Go check out the offerings on Amazon. There are dozens of tablet stands (some self standing, some wall mounts, some articulating).

Here is well priced one that caught my eye the other day: https://www.amazon.com/...p;smid=AXBWQ7QZO9NLW

Was looking for tablet mounts for back of the headrest for my car and came across it (got a toddler to entertain back there). I've got a hack setup now with a Tacx tablet handlebar mounted to a pvc pipe I got off of the classifieds otherwise I might've bought this one.

OK - I get to talk over my stand project!

I wanted a portable stable stand for trainer sessions and didn't like anything I saw on-line. So I decided to bang one out on my own. I'm not going to showcase my carbon fiber fab skills - this was strictly off the shelf but came out OK.

I started with this guy that I'm pretty happy with:
https://smile.amazon.com/...00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Then I used a 2-gallon bucket and some galvanized pipe and a few reducing nipples to make a length that would work for the trainer - I used a 48" 3/4" pipe and eventually got it to a 3/8" nipple that fits into the handle of the clamp above. Put a flange on the bottom of the pipe and I mixed and poured in some grout from an old bathroom project. I added a few pipe clamps from electrical so I could hang a towel on it and it's done. Maybe $40-50 in parts and 1/2 hour to fasten it all.

I could have saved more money using PVC pipe, but the galvanized seemed like the sturdier solution - I was a tanker in the Marines and I prefer steel.

I bought this one in Jan 2015. $35, prime shipping. Easy, 5 minute assembly, sturdy, so good my wife keeps stealing it and setting it in front of her bike.
