Hardware question: is there a common sort of clamp for holding a round/tubular object?

I want to build my own bike repair stand. Most of the materials are straightforward pipes and couplers, except for one crucial part: the clamp. On commercial stands
, the clamp is a nice wide, padded set of jaws adjustable with a big ol' knob. If I have to, I'll just buy that part, but I can't find it by itself (at least not for less than the cost of a whole repair stand).
I need something like a burette clamp
(I remembered that from chemistry class!), but more heavy-duty, and preferably with quick release.
Does such a thing exist in woodworking or plumbing? Someone must need to clamp stuff to pipes/clamp pipes to stuff, right?
