This stand is solidly built but still folds for storage. Adjustable height and grip work well holding the height but the QR tightening mechanism when fully tightened (at least that I can get) will still allow some rotation, which is why I deducted a star. That said, I believe it's a great value and the best in that price range.
I have a couple friends that have this stand. Been riding MTB for 29 years. Been reluctant to spend the $$ for a new workstand. I really like the compatibilityfit for our different frames and functions (such as height adjustments). If your 65 or 5 tall youll love this thing. Quality is excellent and I really like how the stand folds up for a small footprint. Very easy to use and would highly recommend this product as a buy. I used feedback brand and I like this and the quality better. Good Riding!
This stand makes propping up the bike against the wall so outdated. Being able to work on the bike in every possible orientation is unbelievably useful. I am rebuilding an old frame with new 11 spd. campy and have found the stand to be indespensible and easy to use. Plus it is easy to get out and put up.
Fantastic value. Fully adjustable height, angle. Quick release clamp for quick mounting and unmounting. Wish I had bought this a long time ago. I now lube my chain much more frequently (as I should) because it is so easy to do.
This stand is perfect for the home mechanic. It is very stable for wrenching despite being very quick and easy to set-up. Works great for bike cleaning and regular maintenance as well - using the stand ensure the bike doesn't tip over while working on the bike as opposed to just leaning it against something. Makes cleaning much easier as the bike can be raised and/or rotated to make reaching hard to clean areas easier.
It sets up easily and easily takes down for storage. It holds my bike very securely in all rotational positions when clamped down. The quick-releasequick-clamp head is a great feature of this stand. It holds my bike very stable when working on it.
Very easy set-up out of the box. Works great on the aero carbon seatposts of the bikes we own. Very stable. Ability to rotate bike into various position for cleaning andor working. Folds up quick and easy for storage.
The Park PCS-10 is a great tool to have around your garage to work and clean your bikes. I use this at least 3 to 4 times a week to work and clean our bikes after every ride. This has made working on the bikes much easier and allows you to set the bike up to work on in almost any position. This is a tool I wish I had purchsed much sooner.
I replaced one of those cheapie units from one of those discount warehouses with the Park Tools unit. Heavy Duty, Easy to Use and highly functional. You want the best? Then you're going to have to pay for the best.
I needed a stand to work on my mountain bike, I knew Parks products are good, but, didn't know which one to go with . . .
picked the PCS-10, ship time was great! And when I got it . . .WOW, what a deal, very strong and solid, so glad I got this,
makes working on my bike a joy! I don't think I will never need another work stand!
The PCS-10 is my first repair stand I've had a home so I don't have much to compare it to. It was very easy to put together out of the box. I have two very different road bikes-a late model carbon racing bike, and a 10 year old aluminum bike-with very differently shaped top-tubes and seat posts, but the stand works well with both of them. All good so far!
Between all family members we have 14 bikes, this has cut our work to a minimum, with being able to get the bike off the ground and to a comforatble working heigth, whether standing or sitting on a stool.
The better clamp is a PLUS over the PCS-9 model. Well worth the additional $$
