Lots of stuff to talk about so I will start from the top down.
-the quick release clamp head: this bit actually holds the bike so you'd expect it to be sturdy, it is. The plastic is surprisingly strong but not too hard to break or mark the frame. It is shaped like two V's so it will allow you to operate brake and gear cables, on my bike it restricts the brakes but this is no problem as when working on rear brake I can just use seat post instead of top tube. The quick release is very easy to operate; you just screw the wing nut at the bottom to thickness of tube and use the quick release. the clamp is mounted on a good quality metal post so it can be rotated 360 degrees and also brought in and out so to allow use of the pedals.
-tool tray: I thought this was a bit naff and useless but decided to put it on. It clamps around the main tube so it adjustable up and down very easily. The tray itself has 3 little trays, the main one is magnetised which is very useful as many bike parts are small and easily lost. The two other trays are useful as well. Around the edges it has holes of different sizes so tools such as Allan keys and screwdrivers can be inserted and are in easy use when working on the bike, not having the tool at hand is very annoying when working on fiddly bike bits. It has a couple of hook like things for hanging cloths and rags on and also a couple of holes; I use those to hang spray bottles on.
-main tube: the main tube is made from steel I assume it's hefty and strong, it comprised of a smaller tube inside a bigger tube with a quick release.Read more ›
It took little longer than 5 minutes to set up the stand and the bike hanging from its saddle post. This stand with its four leg quadpod design is not going to topple (make sure you set one of the legs dead centre front) even if you put some pressure on the bike.
My bike is a tourer and it took the weight easily and you get no more movement from the stand and bike when turning the peddles than on a Park Tool stand. The grip of the clamp feels secure and is fully adjustable for many frame sizes. The latest models clamp (as with the two telescopic tube clamps) comes with a quick release handle.
My only criticism is the tool/parts tray. In its self the tray is OK, it has a magnetic zone in the larger dish and is large enough to take nuts bolts and the like, it even has holes of varying size to accommodate some smaller tools, screwdrivers and hex keys etc. The problem is the diameter of the circular clamp, it is too wide for the upper tube and if attached where it is meant to be attached blocks peddle rotation, if the bike is at a tall working height. This though is easily remedied by adding a rubber shim to the upper pole and clamping around this.
Over all this is the perfect stand for the amateur bike mechanic, at home. It is right for the job and at an unbeatable price. Highly recommended.
The other thing is an observation, that maybe tripod legs works better than quadpod. Since with 4 legs you are not guaranteed to have a flat surface all the time.
