This seems great, in my limited usage so far. I had previously only had a small work-stand that had a bottom bracket rest and downtube clamp.
This is much better and feels like the ones I see in shops.
At first when I unpacked it I was daunted by how far the legs spanned, and thought I didn't have space for this thing. But the tripod action let's you pull them in much narrower if you don't need that much stability. So for storage I have the legs only about 30" across, and the bike held right near the center, and I store a bike hanging there.
To work last night on a wheel, I spread the legs a little more and hung the bike further so that pedals could turn without hitting.
If I was going to crank on things, I'd move the stand out of my shed and set the legs full wide, maybe 5'-6' across.
One thing, if you have a carbon frame, sometimes the recommendation is to clamp onto the seatpost instead. This frame clamp rotates to support that. But the clamp width is 5" or more, I think less than 6". I've got only about 4" of post showing because it's an old school frame with flat top tube. I suspect the same is true of any stand, I don't know, but I thought I'd mention it. One could always have the bike mostly hanging and lightly clamped.
For this price, the stand is good for light to medium duty work. The frame is constructed of metal posts, but all of the clamps are made of plastic. They seem fairly sturdy, but time will tell how well they hold up. I do worry about the main t-brace that connects the stand to the clamp. I'm a little worried about the pressure added to it when the clamp arm is extended. I would like to see a different design and material for the part of the clamp that contacts the bike. The clamp does close and open quickly with the screw adjustment. If you don't look at all the pictures you may not realize that the base has four legs (the main picture makes it look like a tripod). These can be spread out fairly wide and offer a very stable work base. I've only used it a couple of times, but it does hold my bike. I gave it four stars because of the plastic parts and that it's not a "high quality" stand. As of this writing, I would purchase this stand again.
?Excellent stand for my new hybrid & 1st bike since middle school some 63 years ago. ?It makes it super-easy to clean, lubricate, etc. my Fuji. ?Saw complaint re. shipping cost but considering its weight to be sturdy, it's well worth every dollar.
