My old stand was broken and this was the deal of the day. Great price, and I felt even better once I had a chance to use it. Sooooo easy to set up, take down, and use. Lots of options and very sturdy. Would completely recommend this product and Bike Tires Direct. I keep coming back, thanks for all the great products at great prices!
I have used this stand for five years now. It is reasonably light and portable, but also very stable and gentle on the bike. The quick release armjaw is incredibly and easily adjustable. Highly recommended.
This stand is great. I love the quick release features in it and it sets up in no time at all. It's not the most stable stand if you have the bike propped up in a vertical position but no portable stand is. I like this one because it's light weight. Easy setup, breakdown and allows you to get to work quickly so you don't have to spend a lot of time setting up just to maintain your bike. The clamp is great for seat posts and has a good amount of power in it. Careful tightening on top tubes is recommended (if you do clamp there).
I own a PRS-25 and purchased this for my girlfriend. If my PRS-25 went missing today, I'd buy another PRS-25 and not the Pro-Elite. Not a bad stand, but the Park stand works better for me.
Had a very old Park stand that I was afraid to use on my carbon bike. In fact I couldn't because the clamp closure was too tight for my carbon tubes, and I have no room on my seat post. So I bought the Feedback, and very happy that I did. I am rather critical of the way things are made and how user friendly they are. And the Feedback just showed up today, and right out of the box I was very impressed.
This is thing is very well made, very well engineered, with precision adjustments. There is absolutely NO assembly reguired. It's ready to go out of the box. I told my bike buddy it's built like the Hubble Telescope, with beautiful tubes, and well thought out clamps and jaw. I can't imagine anyone going wrong with this stand. The only thing it may not work for might be a tandem. But that's not my world.
Buy it, and you will be glad you did.
Arrived promptly (thanks BTD)and securely packaged so the brown truck could do no damage. Out of the box and in service in less than 5 minutes. Both my 17 lb. carbon and 28 lb steel bike attach quickly and held tightly while running up and down the gears, spinning up the rear wheel and doing derailler adjustments.
I own this stand and paid more for it at my local recreational equipment provider. However, mine came with a tote bag so that may be the reason. I love the one touch button to unlock your bike and i hold my bike with one hand and use my stomach to push it in when clamping. very easy to use and convenient. It is rated up to 85 lbs and with my 30 lb touring bike its rock solid. Buy it and get the tool caddy to go with it.
I was excited to upgrade my old Park Tools stand and get my hands on the pro elite clamping mechanism. The quality and operation of setting up the stand and clamping a bike in the jaws are flawless. However (and I should have anticipated this) the lightweight aluminum that makes the stand so portable also makes it wobble and bob like crazy when you're trying to do any work on it. This stand would be fantastic for light work and cleaning tasks in the field, but this doesn't pass muster as a solid home repair stand -- I can't imagine putting any kind of force on it to remove/install a BB, say; trying to adjust shifting with the bike bobbing around is tough enough. I think the Feedback Pro Elite Commercial Clamp paired with a Park Tools professional stand might be the ideal solution -- until I get more space to work in, it's back to my old folding Park stand.
After 10+ years of using a budget-model workstand I was excited to upgrade. I'm happy to say the Feedback Sports Pro-Elite Stand has met my expectations. It is easy to open and collapse but very sturdy and stable when deployed. The clamp works well and smoothly and it makes working on the bikes much more accessible. Two thumbs up.
I'm new to the cycling world, so I have no previous experience with work stands, but I found it to be very stable, easy to use and setup. My wife and I have Specialized Diverge and Dolce road bikes with aluminum frames. Will need to store it flat, or propped up in a corner as it's a little top heavy (can fall over when leaning against a wall) I toiled over review after review of various stands on the market, and seriously considered going with less expensive options, but I have zero regrets with this purchase.
I use this stand at home while working on my bikes. I took it with me to Colorado on my last trip and it folds up to a reasonable size and is there when I need it. Light weight and easy to use. I should have ordered the bag to store it in, I don't want this great looking tool to get scratched!
