Are you referring to one of these or similiar?

Could you use a chain scrubber with this setup for example?

Get something you can ride on so you can use it as a wind trainer as well as your tune up tool. Something like this

Yes and yes. Chain scrubbers can be used whenever the rear wheel is off the ground.

Personally I would buy one of these before the repair stand you linked before as this is more than adequate for most bike jobs.
Bianchi, Ridley, Montague, GT, Garmin and All things Apple :)

Thanks for excellent advice as always. I will look into the wind trainer/rear wheel stand idea some more.
