This review is from: BDBikesTM Folding Bicycle Repair and Maintenance Stand - Bike or Cycle (Misc.)
On deciding to dive in and do my own home serving and cleaning of my road bike, I knew from the start I needed a decent work stand for my bike. I had seen a few bike shop stands in the flesh and decided this was a bit too heavy duty for my needs, as I would be only using this stand a few times a month.
After about 2 hours of researching into different types,shapes and price ranges of stands on many independent bike websites, I came across this gem on amazon. Cheapest one with a few reviews... I was skeptical at first, so decided to return to the search list. After seeing the other stands at considerably high prices and the same level of reviews I returned, at first I thought it was all made out of cheap plastic hence the price, how I was proved wrong. After deciding to go with my wallet instead of my head, I ordered it.
Amazons faultless delivery again prevailed, ordered on Wednesday 19:00 night standard delivery, delivered Friday morning with free delivery. Box was quite weighty, so I was surprised to see a metal construction with heavy duty plastic fittings come from it after only paying what I did. Took 10 minutes to set up and the spread of the feet are amazing to give the stand a really firm base to work from.
Worked for around 5 hours with my road bike which weights around 11kg at different heights and angles and the stand performed perfectly. The added magnetic tray (which other brands make you buy) really helps you keep all them bolts in one place and makes a great place to store tools you need at a arms length.
For the home DIY biker this is a must and have recommended to many friends.
