fine for traditional ladies stepthrough bicycle !!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NEW BICYCLE REPAIR WORK STAND NEW DESIGN WITH QUICK RELEASE HANDLE AND CLAMP HOME CYCLE BIKE MECHANICS MOUNTAIN ROAD PROFESSIONAL code ; A146 (Misc.)
I bought this maintenance stand after much research based on price and the wonderful reviews it has recieved.
The item arrived quickly and well packaged. Assembly was straightforward and drama free.
This is a well made and thought out product that is well up to its job, I have read some criticism of the quality of some of the components and all I can say I dont have any issues with the quality of the materials used in any of the components used, yes there is a lot of plastic but it appears to be very strong and well designed where it is used.
There are five cycles in regular use in our household and general maintenance is now a pleasure using this stand.
At least one reviewer has complained that this stand is no good for traditional ladies stepthrough bikes, I have not found this to be the case!
My partner has a bronx londoner which is the heaviest bike in the household with a hefty steel curved stepthrough frame. I have to admit that at first I thought it would not be possible to safely mount it on this stand!
However I recently had the job of fitting two new tyres and servicing the dum brakes which was nearly impossible to do without a stand. I needn't have worried.the stand safely clamped onto the top rail just in front of the seat tube to achieve a rough balance, and held the bike steady for two and a half hours while I carried out the work!
There is a little flex in the stand when any bike is mounted, this is to be expected and in my opinion is nothing to worry about as long as you have balanced to bike correctly, clamped it properly, and it is on a level surface.
If you need a stand for bike maintenance get this one! For price -v- quality you will not be able to do better...
