I did try searching this forum first...
Just upgraded my work stand to a Park PCS-10 and now I'm sure where I should clamp my Durance (or whether I should with this at all). Had an Ultimate (now Feedback http://www.feedbacksports.com/produc...air_stand.aspx) stand with a spinner knob and was clamping near the top of the seat tube -- on the sides -- from behind, just below the collar. My Speedball doesn't extend far enough to clamp.
Wasn't until I went to put my bike on the new PCS-10, with a 'straight clamp' rather than 'perpendicular clamp' on the old one, that it dawned on me. The straight clamp can't do the back and front because in front is that support/stiffener, only side to side. But if you rotate the bike basically 90 deg, the rear wheel and frame hit the upright of the stand.
I'm not gonna get a dummy seatpost. Can/should I clamp on the top tube? Bearing in mind that I have to grab it where the tube is round, not squared, and that's pretty eccentric (off-center). Cables don't seem to be a big deal as the clamping surfaces have a good-sized groove for those.
Thing is, the PCS is height adjustable and easy to rotate, which is important for a Maverick! Of course the stand I've been using for 10 years or so is free and it does work...
Thanks for your consideration.
