This is the first and (to date) only cycle maintenance stand I have owned and I can honestly say that it is an excellent purchase from a quality and cost perspective, although originally the cost almost stopped me from buying it.
The reason for my initial reservations were that all of the stands I had looked at prior to finding this item were more than double the cost. This concerned me that what was on offer was somehow inferior but, having read the reviews, I decided to take the plunge and was so glad that I did.
The item arrived within a couple of days of placing the order and was well packed for it's postal journey. When I opened the box, still expecting the worst, I was pleased to see a sturdily constructed item that surpassed my expectations. The instructions for the assembly were simple to follow and within minutes I had a working item which dispelled any lingering concerns over the quality.
I have used the item now for more than three months and have been extremely happy with it. It is robust, flexible and very easy to use. In short this is excellent quality for the money. It enables me to perform standard maintenance operations that I previously struggled to do. The construction quality is excellent and provides perfect steadiness no matter how you load the bike. It also folds to a manageable size for easy storage.
I would recommend this item to anyone! Don't let the low cost put you off, you won't be disappointed!Folding Bike or Cycle Repair and Maintenance Stand FREE SHIPPING
