Work Stand Shopping

Postby beater32 on Mon 29/Dec/14 8:02pm

So next on the never ending bike shit list is a work stand..Any reasonably priced suggestions ? There seems to be a bunch of cheapys ($90) on Trade Me...not something that's going to get a massive amount of use, so dunno, maybe that's all I'd need..

A good stand was a game changer for me.

Along with good lighting.
My advice would be send some good coin and get a decent one.
clampease of use and durability is critical.

I doubt 100$ ones on TM = decent ones.

mines a pedros - love it - not sure about availability - http://pedros.com/products/mobile-repai ... air-stand/

would seriously consider a park - pcs 10 minimum but more likely PRS20 - (unless I was doing shock work - which i dont)

I have a pcs 9 does the job for me which is the odd service every few months, replacing parts and built a bike. It's a bitch to move around and mount a bike in but once in it's stable.

There's one of those folding pedros in our bike cage at work no idea where it came from and never seen anyone use it!

I use one of these

https://www.torpedo7.co.nz/products/VCWKWNNRS/title/vulcan-bicycle-repair-stand

only criticism of it is the quick release on the clamp doesn't quite have a big enough cam on it.

Got a Park PCS10, love it. You're only going to buy a stand once unless you're doing it for a job or you buy a shit one.

I hang the nose of my bikes seats of the pull up bar I made and bolted to a rafter of my garage.
It works fine :)
I really only use it for setting up gears etc and the rest of the work is done with bikes on the floor.

I've got one of the whorepedo 7 union branded jobbies http://www.torpedo7.co.nz/products/UNWK ... tand-bt999

clamp is a bit shit but its passable and I cbf spending money. Not worth the clams they are asking now. I got it for closer to a hundred and it was alright for the price

still much better than hanging off the rafters or doing it on the floor like a bloody savage

Feedback sports one is nice. I think I have the pro ultralite or somehting. Quick release clamp thing is less of a hassle than one you have to wind in.

I have the PCS9 as well. Wish I'd got the PCS10 instead. The clamp is a pain in the arse, holding the bike in the air while you spin the clamp tight. But once it's in it works like a stand...
