You Won't Find A Better Floor Stand
I did not purchase mine at REI because I needed a White one for my place, but if Black works for you, REI is the best place to get it.
Every few years a revolutionary product comes along that changes the face of the way we normally do things. This is one of them.
I have been using different stands for years, this is the best one. The stand only touches your tire--never the rim, and is so stable you can clean, lube, and adjust your bike on it like I do all the time. It's high quality and light enough to take in the car to ready or clean the bike before/after a race/ride. No need to lean your bike up against your car or other things.
I am even considering getting another one just to leave in the car. It fold flat and opens easy and looks professional.
It holds the front or rear tire just as well.
I really don't see getting any other floor stand--it will take a long time if not never to make improvements on this design. Wish I owned the patent on it.
Everyone with a bike at home, office or garage needs one to avoid falls and damage.
Perfect Floor Stand
I did in-depth web research into other various floor stands and read the reviews posted by other REI members who purchased this particular model before actually buying one from the Settlers Ridge location, Pittsburgh PA (great store, excellent staff).
Purchased this product to perform mechanical repairs. In addition, this model is effective for simply storing bicycles with varying tire widths.
Remove the stand from the box (no assemble required) and pull the Swing Arm for set-up. Then insert the rear bicycle wheel into the wheel cradle and you're complete!
Although this model is not a full-scale shop repair stand, it's still very effective and economical for doing repairs as the bicycle remains stable enough within the Wheel Stabilizer of the unit.
Product materials are made from a strong grade of aluminum and, if you wish, the pivot clips (which allow multiple stands to be interconnected) can be easily removed from the leg caps with a flat-head screw driver.
This model is made in Taiwan as detailed on the packaging/box and not in the USA as detailed in the product Description section by REI.
Great product, reasonably priced.
I always lifted my bike and stored it hanging from the ceiling. Thinking there must be a better way for garage storage during the summer, I purchased this rack. The bike is quite stable; more stable with the rear tire than the front tire in the rack. Easy to take in the car rather than leaning my bike against the car while getting ready for a ride. To inflate tires, simply put the bike in the rack, hold the rack steady with your foot, lift the bike slightly and rotate the tire until the valve stem is in the right position. Should have purchased it earlier.
Just what my bike needed.
I was looking for something to hold my bike while it is in the garage.
This is perfect, didn't want to spend too much money on a repair stand or even think about hanging it from the ceiling from the wheels. Too much money goes into these road/mountain bikes for it to be just hung from it's wheels.
Comes in black, seems sturdy enough for a road bike, holds nicely in place from the rear wheel and when it isn't used you can fold it and hold it in place using built in lock button.
Very pleased and I would recommend this. See photos.
We have a "typical" 2 bike stand for our road bikes, but when my husband picked up a 3rd bike, we needed something that wouldn't take as much room. The reviews on this were positive, so we went for it & are glad we did. He feels very confident with how securely it holds his pricey triathlon bike & likes how little pressure it puts on his wheels (which he was concerned about with this design). We're actually getting another one for our newest bike addition. Highly recommended!
Great Rack System
My husband and I have six bikes, (cyclocross, mountain, road, 29nr, commute) and all of these different types of bikes fit great into the Feedback Rakk system and are very stable. We have the Rakks connected together one beside the other and the bikes all fit and don't bang up against each other. The Rakk system is lightweight and really well built - love the black color. Easy to transport to, it just folds up. We highly recommend this Rakk system! Well worth the price.
Does exactly what it says.
I needed a rack to keep my bike upright, instead of leaning against the wall in my apartment. This rack does just that. To install, you just pull a lever up and it's ready to go right out of the box! Easy to move around, doesn't need to be floor or wall mounted, and keeps your bike secure. Super basic, works as promised, AND it's not leaving any marks on my floors or walls! Great product, decent price, definitely recommended.
Just what I was looking for!
I keep my bike in the carpeted basement at night and was tired of leaning it against the wall. Being 6'-7" tall, my jumbo Cannondale Quick CX is ENOURMOUS as well. This stand has no problems keeping my bike stable and upright, even on thick carpet. Comes ready to use right out of the box. Just flip up the guide. Great product at a great price!
Great rack, especially for triathlons
He have two of these. Going to get two more. We're tried a number of different racks. This one is by far the best. Keeps the bike very stable. The fact that it folds flat makes it very portable. We especially like these racks for triathlons. They stow in a bike box for travel, and are perfect for the transition zone.
A great bike stand
I now have three of these in my garage for a 29er mountain bike, a 26 inch mountain bike and my 700c commuter bike. They are great for keeping my bikes nicely corralled and not leaning on one another. They are easy to use--just roll the bike in and roll it out.
