    Park PCS-10 versus Feedback Sports Sport

    I know there are a lot of threads about stands but I'm hoping some of you shop monkeys can give me a direct comparison of these two stands. They are both similarly priced ($159 vs. $149) but have very different designs.

    I'm a fan of Park stuff but I hear great things about Feedback Sports. So what say ye?



    I live with fear and danger every day. And on the weekends she lets me go mountain biking.

    Another vote for the Feedback. Very good quality and I like the clamp better. It is not as fast as the cam type but it can be used on the frame tubes with care. Much better value IMO.

    Thanks all. I picked up the Feedback Sport for $149.

    I just got a new bike and am surprisingly excited to throw my old bike into the workstand and strip it down to the frame.

    My Feedback Sport arrived today and I must admit I wasn't completely happy with it. Unless I've set it up wrong, the entire clamp unit rotates under the weight of a 26 lbs. bike. I've tightened the big round knob on the back as tight as I can and the bike still settles into a front-wheel-down position regardless.

    I read the instructions and they talk about a clutch in there...is it designed to always allow the bike to rotate front-wheel down?

    haven't had that issue with the feedback. The rear dial needs to be really tight, but it should hold a 26" bike from the seatpost without too much issue. Is bike rotating until the front wheel touches the floor? If so, I think something is amiss, and an exchange is worth looking into.

    The front tire doesn't touch the floor but it does settle into a wheel-down position. Maybe I'm just not turning the rear knob tight enough.

    Can you tighten yours to the point where the wheels are parallel to the ground?

    well, generally the front tire will be a little lowerfor ease of working on the bike, but yes, you should be able to set it horizontal or front wheel high if so inclined. That said, the balance within the tripod might not allow that without the stand tipping.
