    Ultimate Stand

    Here's what I ended up with. I purchased mine brand new from pricepoint on sale for $150. Color RED. This thing is really strong, and supports my MTB bike as well as my road bikes. Makes working on the bike a pleasure.

    I found one on ebay doing a quick search. There are many good stands out there, my experience with this one has been fantastic, and I have been using it for just over 1 year.

    Good luck with your decision.

    Merry Christmas.

    Pretty buff and strong stand. I'm looking forward to easier repairs using it.

    I just picked up the Ultimate Pro-Elite yesterday from Performance -using their early bird special for ~ 179.99. Tried it out lastnight and definitely lived up to it's reputation.

    They live up to their reputation, and I believe "you get what you pay for."

    I originally had their pro-compact version for about 5 months, for some odd reason, the clamping mechanism failed - REI replaced it. Last month I was building up my sworks enduro and noticed that it just wasn't as stable as I'd like it to be, especially when I was working on the crankset and bb.

    So I made the decision to upgrade. In the end, for me anyways, it ended up being only $40 more than the pro-compact. After spending a few "g's" on a new bike, it was a drop in the bucket and well worth the investment to have a stable working platform. Lord knows we all probably spend more than that at any one visit to the LBS.
