This is my first repair stand. I decided it was necessary after years of struggling to wash and service my bikes. The pictures do not do it justice: this thing is SOLID. Assembly was straightforward. As a test, it was able to hold my 30 lb. mountain bike vertically at chest-height with no instability. It has made cleaning a dream, and I actually clean more because it's easy to drop out the wheels and get into tight and hidden places. Folds up relatively compactly. This model lacks the the simplified clamping mechanism and quick-release clamps that Park Tool's next price-point home stand has, but they are adequate. I am very pleased with the quality of this product, and my back is happy too!
This my first repair stand and I am not disappointed. I have 8 bikes that I need to maintain for our household and with the virus issue keeping the family from doing much else, biking is high on the list of activities. This stand is sturdy and stable. I have used the stand for mountain and road bikes and I have had no issues with getting a good clamp on my bikes that do not have round bars. I have also been able to change the angle of the bikes as I work without much of an effort. I like that it collapses down for storage so I don't have to make permanent space for something I don't use every day. I would definitely purchase it again!
Its perfect for my needs. Sturdy, easy to use and folds up quickly and stores relatively small. I give it a definite thumbs up!
As a casual rider in lockdown I've been riding my bikes everyday but have restricted access to my local bike shops. A bike stand was needed to make simple jobs like changing tires and replacing cables less of an ordeal. After researching the reviews on available stands I decided to spend the extra money on the Park PCS-9.2. I have no regrets, it has none of the problems of the lesser priced stands. It was easy to assemble and is sturdy. The lock is secure and the metal is well coated.
This thing is solid and holds my bike steadily at a convenient height for working on it. A quantum improvement over the unstable rear stand I had been using. Truly worth the price.
The product is exactly what I was looking for in a repair stand. Park Tool has done a great job designing this stand. I am looking forward doing repairs using this stand for years to come.
Great product for the price and convenient for my bike work. I have used it for my triathlon bike and my fat tire bike. Excellent stand.
The Park tool repair stand is outstanding! Easy to use. I used it putting my new 2021 Meybo together and rebuild my 1985 kuwahara. The clamp allows you hold a wide range of shapes and sizes. Once your done you can fold it up.
My purchase was never delivered. It was returned to Nashbar with no explanation as to why this was done. I still have not received credit for the cancelled order. I hope this gets corrected ASAP!!!
