is there any stand out that with a fake hub that fork can tighten to so the front wheel is not needed, preferably height adjustable. Only see a tacx one but it's made for their roller so not the best fit.

I could make one using rack mount pieces but not sure if it's a good idea.

Kickr Climb but that's obviously an expensive solution

I looked at trying something similar but was concerned about the twisting forces with the front forks bolted in place

I was looking for a similar thing, mainly due to space, to allow me to get the bike closer to the desk.

In the end I turned my front wheel/fork to 90 degrees and a solid tyre. Note that my bike is permanently on the trainer, otherwise the 90 degree forks would be a pain to change everytime you moved the bike on/off the trainer.

A couple of options here for DIY, but I didn't trust myself

Contact your local Feedback Sports dealer and see if they have the Omnium front stands available separately or any warranty spares.

Way back in the '90s, the German Tour magazine had plans for a DIY workstand-front wheel mount was a wooden 4x4 sized post with a hole drilled for a spare 9mm front axle with locknuts and washers spaced to 100mm with a quick release.

Probably be pretty cheap to build something similar with the 4x4 post mounted to a melamine shelf board base.
