I wanted to have an easy way to hold a frame for re-finishing/painting and didn't want to spend the money on one of these
I fasioned this out of a pvc pipe that is just about 27mm OD (when tightened it doesn't mater that its not exactly the right size). There is a threated rod going thru the pipe with bolts and washers at either end. The washer/bolt setup that goes inside the seat tube is epoxied together so it wont spin when tightening the top. You could do something similar and sturdier with an old seat tube - but i just needed something temporary.

When tightened its very stiff and holds strong, it seems to have enough contact area along the length of the seat tube.
