    Rad bike stand.

    How are they? Junk? Good? They sell for $55 on eBay.

    I made a mistake of buying an e-bay bike stand for around $50 and it has become nothing more then a crappy bike rack for a second bike. Absolutely worthless as a stand.
    If you tried to hold the weight of the bike, you could tell it was going to break.

    It may look similar to the ones that cost more, but they use a lot of cheap plastic parts to put it all together. I don't even think the one I got would hold a light weight road bike let alone my 29er.


    If you are looking for a stand save an extra $100 and your sanity and buy the Park Tool PCS-10. Great stand and best bang for the buck IMO.

    I recently purchased the Park Tool PCS-10 and it has been awesome so far. held my bike no probs while stripping it down and reassembling. night and day compare to a ghetto stand.

    I've got the same stand (Park Tool PCS-10) and I would have to agree. It's worth the money and it will last. I had a crappy stand before that and ended up just hooking my saddle on a tree branch for any work instead of using the stand.

    I had a Park (PCS-1 circa 1992) and now I have a Feedback. FWIW the ease of the park is great. It sets up with one hand and is easily stored. After owning it for 20 yrs it is still just good as the day I bought it. The Feedback is great also but not as convenient, very sturdy and it's cool ano red!
