Overall *pretty good* with some issues

Nice blue finish, arrived fast and in perfect condition from BTD. Got it on sale after eyeing it for a while.

It is very sturdy (that is why you buy this model) and seems of pretty high quality in most places. But I'm at 3.5-4 stars because of the following issues:

1. One of the tubes that requires a bolt to go thru it was only drilled on one side of the tube. Really?!???? Seriously Park? Luckily I have a drill press and the hole happens to be 1/4" and I had a cobalt drill bit in that size. Easy enough if you have the tools, but if you don't this would be incredibly annoying!!

2. The tubes that form the feet are pigeon-toed and not parallel and visibly so. This is probably because the Y joint looks like it was welded on by a drunken chimpanzee. It's probably 1/2" out of parallel - Not enough to affect the function of the unit.

3. The folding legs are super annoying for moving the unit around as they collapse when you lift the unit. I bought some 1/4" quick release pins off Amazon and drilled more holes to keep the legs extended out until I want to collapse them (which is likely never). Another reviewer said they used Velcro straps to keep the legs open, I'm sure that works too.

None of these are deal breakers and the stand performs well. But when you're spending $400 at msrp you kind of expect it to have better quality control.

The clamp is nice, I don't love the plastic handle but i assume they've tested it to be tough enough to last. It has a much stronger grip than my old Bikehand stand, and easily rotated my road bike around however I want it.

One thing that surprised me is the footprint is much smaller than a tripod or the two-legged leaning models. This is a major plus for me.

Overall I'm happy with it now, would probably recommend it if stability is your number one concern.

The Park Tool PCS-4-2 Super Bike Stand

Rock Solid Stability is the Park Tool PCS-4-2 Bike Stand's claim-to-fame . With 4 point gripped footing, and precision-adjustable C-clamp, this stand is a made for home bike repair. Storage is a snap with swing-away legs.

Good but a little dissappointed

It was great until I got my mountain bike on it and started to turn the pedals to adjust the gears. The stand would turn and my bike with it. The top head did not clamp tight. I called Park tool tech support and his best help was to tell me that it's not the top model so that's the way it is. That I could put a sheet metal screw in it but he wouldn't. I was very disappointed. I kept the stand but I am tempted to return it. For $275 it better not move with the bike in it. Other than that I really liked it. Too bad they left one flaw in it when they could have hit it out of the park with a little design change. When companies don't listen to their customers guess what happens?

Extremely sturdy stand but will on it's center of gravity. The top adjuster will not tighten to hold

Great stand if you only hold the bike in one position. It is not able to hold in any attitude other than level.

Not user friendly

This bike stand is big and strong all in the wrong places. If you have a garage that you can keep it up so it's always there to use then great. But if you have a small apartment and have to put it away after use then you should think about a stand that can fold up easy and store in a closet.

This stand is not that kind of stand.

It's heavy and awkward.

State of the art for the home mechanic

This is my third workstand and is exactly what I need for the bikes I have now. My old favorite was basic and heavy and very stable - and great with round tubes. But despite my efforts with foam, fabric and duct tape, it really has never worked well with odd shaped seat posts. I also had a bb clamp workstand but because it required removal of one or another wheel and I am sort of impatient, I found it awkward to use.

This stand combines the stability of my old favorite with a great clamp that works with all of the not round things I have clamped in it so far. It is height adjustable and rotates so is going to give me easy access I never had before to work under or at the lower parts of a bike or frame. The downside is that it cost more than I wanted to spend but I looked carefully at the various versions and decided that this one looked like it would be very stable. It has a little bit of give because the attachment bolts are slightly over length but this is very convenient for me as I work on a deck that is not entirely level, so I can kick the base around a little until it feels solid. I assembled this in a matter of minutes and it does fold some for storage. At this point I cannot imagine needing anything additional or different.

Stand is stable, adjustable and makes working on bikes a preasure.

We repair and restore bicycles. We were using a homemade stand that worked but actually took more time than was necessary to work on bikes. The stand came together easily and the instructions were clear. Like other Park tools that we own and use, this does what is expected.

They made it better !

I was hesitant to order this stand with the new clamp after using the cast adjustable clamp for years, but it is more intuitive to use. Now you can clamp the bike first and then apply just the right amount of neccesary tension. Working on a variety of different frames is easier due to the super wide clamping ability. Like the original,it is made of metal and built to last. My only minor complaint would be the packaging of the product. It came out of the box with several deep scuffs and scratches.

All in, a great stand and a good deal.

Strong, sturdy bike stand, but could use a couple improvements

It would nice to have leg locks (for open and close position) so it can moved without the legs flopping around. I often only have to move it a few inches since I have a small workshop, but the legs are a problem. I put Velcro straps around them to hold them in place. I may drill holes and add bolts. Also when storing the stand, the legs are not cooperative; I have to Velcro them shut. The vertical adjustment isn't very smooth. I had an older, much cheaper stand that had a smoother vertical adjustment (may be due to the rougher texture paint on this one). I bought this stand for the durability, sturdy base, and clamping head. I knew the legs may be a pain, but could fix those.

Clamp is great

Well although this is a stand, really the important is the clamp... and even though this is the less expensive version of Park clamps, which the standard in bike shops... this works well.. with graphite frames you really can fine tune the adjustment and place no pressure on the tubes ... I mean maybe we aren't even supposed to do that... but I have and a next to no pressure tension on the frame holds the bike real nice

Pretty sweet

I like this stand a lot. I think its the next best thing to a pro shop stand. When you get the legs set properly, its nice and stable and the clamp is robust even with some plastic components. Its a little heavy but it is meant to stay at home not travel and this helps with stability.

I really appreciate the sturdy construction of the Park Bike Stand

I've been using an old exercise stand to hold bikes while I do adjustments and work on them - it's so nice to now have a real bike stand I can pop a bike on to, and have it done quickly. I spend more time on the task, and less time trying to keep the bike upright. The Park stand is very stable, well built, but still easy to move around the garage. The engineers at Park really understand us.
