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.
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:
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.

Bought the same last year. Works great, also use it for my cross training instructions in my home gym.
