    Best Bicycle Work Stand for the $$$

    Hey there...

    What's the best work stand value out there?

    I don't want junk, but I don't want to give an arm and a leg, either.

    When I buy an item, any item, I want quality; something that will perform well, for a long time, but I don't have to have the absolute best.

    Ya dig?

    I have this one: http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...air+Stand.aspx It absolutely rocks and is affordable. Can also be fitted with the parktool work tray.
    Rule number 2: Stay in the middle of the trail.

    Look for a used all steel original Park PCS-1, mine cost $90 back in the eighties and I doubt it will ever break or wear out. Seems like the newer models are made to accommodate boxing and shipping and rely on plastic parts.

    i bought a demo Bontreg at the lbs for $90. I would have paid retail, it is a great stand. Looks great, stable, quick releases, very heavy and solid build. Never had a problem. Get it.

    +1. Mine is over a decade old and still going strong.

    I have to disagree with this. I bought a similar stand from performance a few years back and it's good for some things, like cleaning or tuning a derailleur, but because the bike isn't tightly clamped into the stand, it isn't any good for most installs or removals that require any level of torque.

    I have a foldable Universal repair stand I picked up on sale for sub-100 a few years ago. I think it's the same thing as the Feedback stands now. It's no Park stand for sure but it does the job and I like that it folds up and I can store it anywhere or take on road trips.
