    Topeak Prep Stand Elive vs Park PCS-10

    Hey Guys,

    Found several other comparisons out there, but not one comparing the Park to the Topeak.

    I have had the Topeak for several years (actually a pass down from a buddy) and the lower plastic part has finally broke. It is a very old version, so even Topeak does not have the parts anymore.

    They offered to sell me one at discount for 160 bucks which is right in the ballpark of the park pcs-10.

    So now the question is should I replace the Topeak or get something else.

    thanks! opinions welcome

    I have no experience with either of these but my feedback sports "sport" stand serves its purpose well. It is a wind-down clamp which is the only drawback but for the price it is well built. $160 retail but you can find it cheaper.

    I have what looks like the same stand from Amazon: Amazon.com: Aluminum Cycle Pro Mechanic Bicycle Repair Stand Rack Bike: Sports & Outdoors

    It is a good stand that holds my 30lb enduro just fine. It seems sturdy enough for a home stand.

    That $100 stand at amazon looks good for the money.

    But... if you want a stand that will last you for the rest of your cycling life (that should be the rest of your life right???) Get a feedback pro elite. I paid around $210 for mine 4 years ago and it is still working flawlessy, super easy to open and close and folds up super fast.

    Feedback stands. I have one (made when they were under Ultimate) from something like 8 or 9 years ago, it's solid and going strong. Great stuff. I'd never consider those "2-leg" stands, just my opinion.

    Yah, Feedback/Ultimate are the bomb, fold up nice and compact. Agreed on 3 legs > 2 legs.
