I'm fairly pleased I bought this over cheaper apparatus, it's neat, it's sturdy, and the bike looks good on it though I'm not sure it should be stored this way, but why not? It's so much easier to tinker with the bike, in particular gears and chain, when it's secured higher on something like this, without continuous need for stooping down, or bending. Adjustment feels good and certain, overall I feel a sense of reliability. It's not going to fall over. It's made from stout materials and well finished, I feel it's going to last a while. A really nice stand.
