Repair Stand.

Does anyone use this repair stand? It seems like it may be a little sketchy to me. I’d really like my own repair stand but I suffer from the poorness. Thoughts?

Im happy with this one… If you use a 20% coupon code and have it shipped to the local store, and you are a member (figuring in your 10% back)… It ends up being a little over $100

I have that exact repair stand, and no real complaints. It works great and does just what it says on the box, hasn’t gotten that beaten up even dragging it around in the back of a truck to mountain bike races and stuff.

Only small thing is that if you have it holding the seatpost of a bike, it is somewhat unbalanced towards the side the front wheel is hanging off of. but this isn’t really a huge big deal, I have never managed to come close to knocking it over even tugging on brake cables and bumping into it when moving other things around.

good stand.

I have the step up from this model and after 6 months I am ready to move up to something more heavy-duty.

My issue is that the connection where the stand telescopes out tends to rotate under weight, making it hard to set at a specific angle. I mean, it holds a bike, but so could a cheap-ass vice drilled to my counter. I want something like a super-fucking-rigid robot arm that articulates in 3-dimensions.

I’ve got a homemade rickety ass looking stand that’s as solid as anything else I’ve ever come across. My boogan ass cousin made it for me by welding together a bunch of metal stock he pulled out of his daddy’s barn before we tore it down with sledgehammers and tractors and shit. He was going to sell the metal to a scrapyard, but he decided to build me a repair stand instead.

I wish I could say I’m kidding, but I’m totally not.

I have a cheepo performance one. It sucks but it’s way better than rasslin with a frame on the floor.

i have a cheap nashbar one and i think it works fine. it even holds tight at whatever angle i want, which apparently not all nicer ones can do. (i’m stoned, i hope you can understand that last sentence).

It was fine.
I unederstud it and I’m drunk.

yeah, my friend has this exact stand and i’ve worked on my bike and his bike on it before.
it’s sad. he has so many tools and a repair stand and he doesn’t know how to fix anything on his bike. meanwhile, i have a meager amount of necessary tools and no repair stand and do all the work on mine and his bikes.

I got the non telescoping park model (PCS-1) off ye craiges list. It’s simple and fairly beefy–I like it. It’s really true, after you get a stand youll be like “why the fuck did i wait so long to get a stand?”

I have one of these. They make working on the crank, bottom bracket, or drivetrain cake and are def more stable than a stand that clamps to the seatpost.

^^Used one of those Park Tool ones at the Bike Kitchen tonight, it worked well.

I just got this one a couple of weeks ago
Ive never had a repair stand before so i cant compare, but up to now this one rocks. Its telescopic and everything swivels in every direction.

85 bucks, and thats canadian money, so thats something like 12 of your US dollars.

Just picking nits really but jokes about the canadian dollar being low relative to the USD have been obsolete for a while; when i checked, xe.com said cad $85 is about $82.10 US.

Im just saying, you need to get some new material. WHat’s next a joke about clinton playing the sax?

I’ve got one of these and I like it.

Couldn’t find it on their website though so maybe they stopped making 'em.

Clinton’s the fucking man!
