    Ebay Repair Stand

    What does everyone think of this? I know it is not a park but would it be good enough for the home mechanic (derailleur adjustments, general maintenance, cleaning, etc)?

    Just a bit further down the page is this RAD Cycle Products Bicycle Repair Stand

    Personally, I wouldn't bother with it.

    I bought it...don't. I suppose it was serviceable but I was always worried about the bike falling off. It's not really stable. You won't save money with that stand...you'll just be paying $40 more for the one you want

    yeah after doing some google searches i think I will probably build one of those DIY 'pipe stands'.

    I see on amazon i can get the rubber inserts that go into the park clamps for about $15. So I will probably build some variation of this stand. With the primary variation being that i will insert the park rubber pads into the 2x4's and use some compression fittings to give the clamp the ability to rotate.

    Unfortunately I totally agree. I purchased mine this summer and used it a couple times to service my bike but now it's mainly used as a bike display stand

    I now have a Feedback repair stand and love it!
