Could be great but it's not,
This review is from: Topeak Flashstand Portable Bike / Cycle Tune-Up Stand - Black/Silver (Sports)
The idea is great - a compact, portable, lightweight, folding stand to get the back wheel off the ground.
The reality though is not so great. The rubber lugs that are supposed to support the bottom bracket fell off nearly every time I took the bike off the stand. I tried both sizes and the same thing kept happening, even though I took care to fit the lugs correctly.
Then 7 months after purchase, in the cold weather at the weekend, when I put the bike on the stand one of the black support legs snapped at the hinge! Apparently not suitable for use in sub-zero temperatures then. They seem to be made of quite weak aluminium, which is thin at some points (such as the hinge). My bike is an aluminium hybrid, not particularly heavy.
