Brilliant. Some of the reviews I read made me think that it might be trickier to assemble than it was which made me feel great when it went together so easily. There must be some really incompetent people out there!

Easy to carry out from the dining room to the garage even with the wife screaming at you. Light and stable (the stand not the wife), good frame grip for my mountain and road bikes. Perfect height on maximum for 5'10" man with a bad back. Just need a bike maintenance manual to justify the purchase.

Bicycle repair stands are expensive. I felt that I could not justify that expense and eventually opted for a cheap stand which lifted the rear wheel off the ground for minor servicing. It worked but was a poor excuse for a work stand. However the Park Tool Home Mechanic Stand became available via Amazon at a discounted price and I was tempted into buying. Reviewers heaped praise on it and I guiltily put my order in. After all it is just a bike stand right? Had I done the right thing and spent almost as much on a tool as on my youngest sons bicycle?

The Park Tool stand arrived the next day. Quick! Assembly took about 20 minutes and was easy with tools provided. I was surprised at the forward gait of the stand and that it was lifted forward by the main down tube so that it is supported on three corners. See Amazons photo of the stand. When the stand is lifted the two legs drop so that they stand in line with the main tube. This does make the whole assembly quite long for floor or ceiling storage but very handy for moving the stand through doorways on its side.

With a bike held firmly in the stand I realised why people raved about this stand. It brings a bike to a good working height and allows for the bike to be rotated in a circular arc. The clamp has grooves to accommodate top bar cables and tightens via a handle. A handle at the rear of the stand fixes the whole clamp in position. The construction is bomb proof and even the clamp is well built and very sturdy. The clamp itself provides padding to avoid marks or scratching on the bike. Given that the bike can now be placed upside down or sideways within a 360 arc of movement it really does make repairs, servicing or cleaning an absolute joy.

Bought this stand after many, many years of trying to make repairs on my bike while it sat either propped up against a wall or rested upside-down on its saddle and handlebars. Can't imagine now how I ever did without this.

As other reviewers have noted: the pictures do not do this stand justice. (I'll be adding a picture of my own soon)

Make no mistake; this is a serious, solidly built piece of kit, well worth the price I paid for it and more besides.

The stand requires some very basic assembly that takes no more than five minutes. Hoist your bike up and into the clamp (suspend it either by its top-tube or saddle-post, I prefer the latter personally) and you're away.
The clamp can be rotated 360 degrees while your bike is in position, making it a doddle to reach and service all the bits that matter.
The main tube is telescopic, and can be adjusted to the desired height. And here is my only minor gripe: An allen key is needed for this action, when a quick-release lever would make this so much easier to do. Still, not a major problem and certainly not worth removing a star for.

This is a chunky, stable stand that will last you a lifetime if you look after it (and even if you don't!) Highly recommended and utterly indispensible!

I brought this stand for my husband and he's very happy with it as it makes working & cleaning his bike a lot easier, a lot better than bending and crouching on the floor. Quite simple to assemble, a good tip rub a bit of candle on the housing that the clamp spindle goes into as this makes it easier to twist the clamp to another position otherwise the clamp spindle jams when you tighten it. I would have give it 5 stars but a bit pricey, but it's a must have piece of kit.
Recieved within 2 days great service from Amazon as always.

Appalling - a triumph of design and engineering over common sense. The legs collapse forward towards you as you lift it - the most counter-intuitive and lazy concept you could imagine. It's very difficult to move around the workshop - just because they gave the design to a 12 year old on a Friday afternoon.

The jewel in this Ministry of Cr@p Design-approved concept is the press-fit tube into which the jaws are mounted. Once you tighten that clamp, it's not going to turn. Great... until you want to revolve the bike a few degrees. Ah, but it's stuck in there with no spring to push it back out when you loosen the clamp. So, it's bike off, mallet out of the drawer and bang the clamp at the back until it loosens off. Just to turn it a few degrees.

A loathsome creature - there are numerous better designs out there for half the money. Shame I fell for the "Park Tools make better products and you get what you pay for" mantra. The final straw was when I almost smashed my £5K bike against the wall, while trying to outwit the clamp revolve mechanism.

Fabulous Amazon service, as usual - they've refunded my card and DHL will collect this piece of junk from my office. I'm reluctant to give it even one star - but that's as low as the rating system will go.
