Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Raleigh Folding Workstand for Bicycle (Sports)
Having had a few issues with my bike recently I purchased this stand to work on my bike and give it a good clean down. Despite it only having two legs, it easily held my 17kg mountain bike whilst I cleaned my bike and attempted to sort my gears out.
A bike stand is an essential item when working on your bike, and makes cleaning a bike much easier too.
My bike has an awkward box style square frame which means it often won't accommodate clips and clamps, but this stand held my bike very easily and incredibly stable too. The clamp swivels through 360 degrees making it very versatile, allowing you to clamp the bike frame (even my awkward one) or the seat post. The grooved clamp also means I was able to keep my brake cable free so was able to use my brakes easily.
One slight niggle: The clamp arm lock is not the greatest. The plastic teeth interlock fine, but it worked a little lose after a while, but I was giving my bike a thorough going over and it was on the stand for quite sometime (90min +). The bike was secure, just needed a minor adjustment to secure the clamp arm.
Excellent value for the money though. If you look round, you'll realise this stand is really cheap but is great quality!
