    Bose QC25 Noise Cancelling Headphones (NOT QC35 Bluetooth ones) and a set of these - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Med-Fit-P...72.m2749.l2649 The 1 MHz one has worked really well to reduce the pain in my sacroilliac joints and related sciatica.

    I've got one-a-them! Well the red standard version. It's not even slightly precarious but can be hassle to get the bike onto the footrest support brackets. It also needs a full power mains power drill. The (otherwise excellent) 18V DeWalt can't quite cope. I much prefer it to a bike table as the table itself does not get in the way.

    All it needs if lockable heavy duty castors (to push the raised bike into an awkward corner) and it would be a great anti theft system.

    Fluff.
    Get an Easy Riser. Less space hungry and does a better job than a lifting table.

    Tyre pressure monitors.

    Much better than the twitch through the seat when the tyre is almost flat.
