After years of nicking the garage drywall up and getting oil droplets in all sorts of undesirable locations trying to service my bike hanging on the wall rack, I finally ponied up some cash to make the servicing aspect of my riding life easier and purchased this stand. It is nothing short of fantastic and has grasped a number of various types of bikes (road/mountain/fitness), primarily by the seat post without issue. Very stable, with rotation and up-down adjustment features. Folds up in seconds very compactly for storage when not in use. A purchase 10 years overdue for me.
We had to wait several months for this bike repair stand to arrive and am I ever glad I did not give up and cancel the order. I love it. The bike repair stand is very sturdy and yet folds down to a small size so it doesn't have to take up much space when not in use. I was so pleased at how robust and stabile the stand is. I have used it for our road bikes, mountain bikes, mom's hybrid bike and even our tandem bike, so it has already seen a lot of use this spring. It is quick and easy to attach a bike and makes working on bikes so much easier! I recommend this product.
Needed a reasonably priced stand fro road trips that didn't take up too much space. It now my main stand and my super old parktool is just a bike wash stand. Easy quick set up. Seems durable, definitely affordable (got it on sale so extra affordable). Was even able to transfer my work tray from my park tool stand.
When I opened the box for my new bike repair stand I was instantly amazed. The stand is on the high standard and very durable. The set up was extremely simple and it certainly does the job for any type of bike. If you want a premium stand without having to spend major bucks, this is the one for you.
I struggled to maintain my bike at home and this is the best product I could have purchased. The stand is very sturdy and rugged, adaptable in positions, and high quality. I am tall and this stand makes it easy to work without stooping. The picture does not do the product justice - it is much more substantial than I expected. It stores very compactly and sets up easily.
The low price at BTD added value to the purchase.
Im kicking myself for waiting so long to get a mechanics stand. Glad I finally did. The Feedback Sport stand is super-solid, very stable with its wide base and is easy to set up. I expect many years of use. Fine value for the money.
For years I tried basic maintenance without a stand. Do NOT be like me. A stand makes everything easier to reach and is much easier on your back. Now for the review what an incredible value. This stand is sturdy, folds up easily, is well built, and generally gives one a sense of accomplishment. You could spend more, but why? Trust the good people at BTD, wait for a Feedback sale, and have this delivered in a matter of days. You wont be disappointed.
I've been using this stand for several years, and bought another one as a gift for someone who desperately needed an affordable workstand (he loves it, BTW). The stand is durable, highly adjustable, breaks down easily for storage, and sells for very reasonable price. The tripod legs spread out wide to keep the stand stable while you're wrenching, and the top clamp securely holds light road bikes as well as heavier mountain bikes. You could spend a lot more for a stand, but in my opinion, this one offers all the features you need for years of regular use.
This is my first bike work stand and I find it so easy to set up wherever I choose, the yard for clean chain or the basement for changing components. I will be changing many things during the winter months, using the stand. Ideal for modifying handlebars, stems, moving shifters, changing bar tape. It places the bike securly where you want it, not leaning against a door or wall, allowing it to freely move during the work. I do wish the horizontal member were just slightly longer. I find it necessary to adjust the bike from hanging vertically so the pedals can clear the main vertical stand, when turning the cranks.
I put my bike back on the stand every time I get back from a ride. This makes it so much easier to give it a wipe down (or bring it to the driveway to clean). Adjustments and repairs are SO much easier with the stand. I really wish I had one of these years ago! I'm 6' tall and the stand extends more than enough to keep me upright even when cleaninglubing the chain )
Part of me wants a quick release clamp for it, but since I switch between a road and mountain bike on the stand pretty often, I'd have to adjust for that anyhow.
