Ride your new bike long enough and at some point you'll likely develop a curiosity for how to fix it. But if you've ever tried to repair or maintain your bike while it leans against a wall, you know how frustrating it can be.

Rock solid

I use this wrench on all the bikes including the kids (small bikes, the other stand I had was a cheap one that held the bottom bracket and bottom tube and I don't know how many times my bikes fell on me, PLUS it doesn't take up a lot of space when folded up (other one didn't fold up at all). I like the adjustable height, which is higher than other stands out there. You clamp it on the seat post and then you have access to all the bike without worrying about the clamp hitting any cables etc. Just only with the bike in certain positions, the front wheel can turn and smack you if you're not careful. The only issues I have are: 1. the clamp, you have to turn and turn while you hold the bike in position. I now just lower the height, clamp, then raise the bike. 2. the rotation clamp is a bear, if you rotate the bike so the front wheel is higher than the rear. If you don't turn it really tight, then the bike will rotate on you. If I'm doing a front brake and want the front wheel up, then I'll clamp the bike on the top tube versus the seat post.

Overall, a good buy for the price. You can bypass these issues if you buy the top line, "elite", but for another $100 bucks, not worth it for me.

For the money, this is a great stand. It's pretty solid and very portable. I say pretty solid because you do have to crank it pretty hard to keep it from rotating, but that's true of all stands at this price point, and once you crank the bolts down it doesn't move. I like the tripod design a little better than the fold-out legs of the Park PCS-9, it is is more versatile, allowing you to put the bike on at any angle. It also compact much more nicely to travel, allowing me to take it to races. It's travelled all over with me for two years now, including being out in the rain at races, and it's still in great shape; it's a very durable piece of equipment.
It would be nice if it had a lever clamp instead of the screw mechanism, but to get that you have to go to a higher price point. I like this stand and would buy it again.

Very pleased

I was first considering the more expensive Feedback Ultimate stand. But I realized that this stand was just as sturdy and useful and much less expensive. Especially on sale. The main difference is the Ultimate Stand's clamp makes it faster and easier to clamp a bike to it. But the clamp mechanism on the Sport Mechanic stand works well and is no problem in use. It isn't as if I am going to be clamping many bikes to it day in and day out. So if it takes 10 seconds vs. 2 seconds who cares?

The other difference is the knob vs. clamp for tightening the base and locking the height. I don't see why this would matter and the knobs work well.

This stand is a few inches shorter than the other one. But it holds the bike more than high enough for me and I rarely raise it all the way up.
AlanG at REI on 12/12/2011

Stand was sturdier than I originally thought. I prefer the three-legged tripod stand better than the two-legged Park Tool design. I've worked with both Park Tool and Feedback and I have a Feedback at home now. I was a little concerned about some of the plastic parts, but after receiving the stand, it has metal in all the places needed. I prefer the knob-adjusted rotation of of the clamp arm and the screw-in clamp at the end of the arm that holds the frame. I don't need to be concerned with the clamp arm marring my aluminum-framed road bike, but it also has the strength to hold a steel-framed downhill mountain bike firmly. Shipping was super quick as well. Ordered it on Saturday and it was on my doorstep on Wednesday!

Works great and fits pretty much anythin

This stand works great and is a great value, especially when you can find it on sale or use a coupon. I initially bought a bottom bracket support stand (from another store) but it wouldn't work with most of my bikes, either they would rock on the under BB cable guides or it would rub. FWIW most of my bikes are mid-80's - 90's vintage, they may work fine for your bike but this one works great with anything I could think off (with the possible exception of an Allsop Beam bike/no seatpost). The more expensive ones are lighter and the clamps are easier to close one-handed but this stand is a great value for a non-pro user.

A lot of stand for the money

This is a great bike repair stand, especially for the cost. For the price you would expect the stand to be thin tubing and not very sturdy but its the exact opposite- very burly construction, extremely sturdy and appears very durable. That is also the downside to this stand, as its pretty thick and doesnt get as compact as the more expensive stands. For me its perfect because I only intend on using it at home and could care less how compact/lightweight it is- still fits under the bed or in the trunk though. If your debating between this and the lower end park stands, you will not be disappointed with this one.

Very nice stand for the money

Love the versatility of height adjustments, 360 degree rotation and ability to change the clamp angle for seatposts, frame, etc. Is very stable and easy to clamp the bike down.

Is a little bulky and heavy for easy traveling but folds down nicely so the travel bag may help with ease of taking it on the road. Have to tighten the spin knob pretty tight to keep the front wheel from moving up and down when really putting force on the bike (this is the clamp that holds the arm in place, not the bike so tightening it down does no harm to the bike).

Overall, a great stand.
PL the Roadie at REI on 01/01/2008

Sure it isn't the lightest, no it doesn't have the most advanced clamping snaziness. But yeah, it still lives in my living room, set up and ready for work! Plenty of clamping power, good height adjustment, very stable. Even easy to adjust with the bike clamped up which is nice when you need a different angle. Add on an accessory work tray and you are good to go! Packs up relatively small and fits in the trunk no problem. You could spend a lot more, but if you are wrenching your own stuff and not trying to move as many bikes as fast as possible you don't need more than this.

Happy gift receiver

We gave this as a Christmas gift to our son-in-law who is an avid cyclist. He has been wanting it but hesitated because he could not justify the cost. Well, he loves it because it is light weight, sturdy and adjustable. He put the bike on it to demonstrate how it would make it easy to work on the bike and he was beaming the whole time. I think we did well this year. For what he got, the price is worth it. By the way, the son-in-law is quite tall, so this stand will save him from having back problem.

Sport Mechanic Repair Stand

When opening up the stand, it felt very well-built. The clamp holds the bike securely, and it never slipped down the seat tube while using it. The clamp arm is a bit long, which means that you have to positing your bike over one of the legs for it to be stable. Also, the tightening screw behind the clamp arm really needs to be cranked hard to keep the bike from tilting. All and all, these are just small gripes; It is a great stand for someone looking to do their own bike repairs.

Negative Reviews:

Avoid buying this stand.

The swivel does not secure properly no matter how tight you get the plastic knob. I have a 24.9 lb. XC dual suspension mountain bike that swings and drops straight to the ground when mounted to the stand with the knob tightened as much as possible without breaking it, and will not stay in a desired position at all. Too bad, because the rest of the stand is of great quality with a sturdy collapsable tripod mount. I returned it to REI for a full refund yesterday with no problem. Looks like I'll have to do a little more research and comparative shopping for a good stand.
Scot Biker at REI on 06/06/2013

Not what I hoped for.

I find that when using this stand with complete bikes it is very difficult to tighten enough to stop rotation of the bike. The "protective" pads where the bike is held took some paint off my frame too.

Neutral Reviews:

Hard to firmly stabilize bike...

The stand itself is VERY well constructed. No problem there! The one problem is how the horizontal arm (on which you hang the bike off) attaches to vertical post of the stand. Unless you 'really' tighten the 'turn knob' at the back (I mean really tight) as you work on the bike, it will start to droop down. The problem is, this is a metal on metal fitment and the weight of the bike (especially when it is hung off the seat post - I have not choice) the uneven weight distribution simply torques the fitting and bike droops down. In fact, I always find that my front wheel finally hits the ground – not a problem unless you wanted to work on the front wheel.

I'm not sure I have explained this issue fully but check out the stand at Performance. They have a very similar stand but their unit has addressed this very point by having small 'teeth' around the circumference of the two fittings. Thus, the teeth bite into each other preventing the weight of the bike torquing it downwards. If you plan to hang the bike especially off the seat post, this is a problem. I think all Feedback stands have this arrangement but at least the higher end models have what I call a 'spider' or 'star' knob that makes it easier to tighten. I'm thinking this may not be problem if the bike is hung off the top bar as the weight of the bike would then be evenly distributed. Good luck.

Rugid stand

The heavy weight is good as this stand is very stable. The only drawback is that the knob for securing the arm needs to be tightened very hard to prevent arm rotation. Even with tightening hard, the bike can rotate if you put even a light vertical force on the bike. Also, the height clamp does not prevent rotation well. I would have expected a more positive clamping means for both problem areas.
