All you have to do is look at the other two-star reviews to understand a recurring flaw with this design. I have a 2015 Aluminum Trek hybrid, about 25 pounds. After my first use of the stand, the discs with the teeth that keep the bike from rotating began to separate when in the closed position. During the second use, I noticed the teeth were almost completely out of the corresponding locking holes. Any further, and the bike would rotate freely while in the stand. See the photo I've included with this review.
That alone is enough reason not to invest in this stand. But there's more. Opening and closing the stand was a hassle. The collar on the leg supports gripped the main tube too tightly to raise or lower without jiggling at both legs alternately until it would eventually move where I wanted it.
Lastly, the quick releases were a major drag. The one used to lock the head tilt position would actually make the head looser when I closed it with average tension. To get it to hold the head, I had to make it extremely tight, making me wonder if it would break. Even then, the head would sometimes slip. Getting your bike in and out with a quick release is also a pain. You have to approximate the amount of space to have it open, then slip in your seat post, close the quick release, and hope you estimated correctly. If you were wrong, you do it all over. And lest you think you only have to play with it the first time, once you have it where you want it, the jaws may be too "closed" with the quick release open to get your seat post out. So you have to rotate the quick release lever to open the jaws further. What good is a quick release then?
I have to believe the quick release issue isn't exclusive to this stand, which makes me wonder why these things get such great reviews. I ended up returning this stand (no hassle, by the way) and spending a little more ($30) on the Park PCS-9, which has NO quick releases, and is a joy to use. See my detailed review on that one if you're curious.
I emailed the seller with a question and asked him to give me a call and received a phone call back in just minutes. Outstanding customer service on top of a very high quality product is special these days.
I wish I had found this stand long ago as I have been using my Kurt Kinetic trainer to hold my bike while I make adjustments and such while on my hands and knees in the garage. This stand is so nice I have it in my study to make adjustments. In fact I am changing out my old frame and it is fantastic. I cannot say enough good about this stand. Very highly recommended.
The repair stand arrived broken. There are two pivot points on the arm where it clamps onto the bike. One side was broken. Contacted the seller and received a replacement arm in 3 or 4 business days. Still, it leaves me concerned that at some point this arm will break again. The whole arm is made of heavy duty plastic. Two of the pictures are different angles of the break and the third picture is of the other (unbroken) side for reference.
The other issue I've had is that the legs will tend to start to fold up at times. It's in very little steps, so it's not like the stand fell over or dropped a bike. And it's not like it happens all the time. But it's frustrating to not have it stay in the position while you are working on the bike. Then you've got to stop what you are doing and re-adjust the stand. I've pushed the legs fully open and re-clamped it tighter, but it still walks sometimes. After the arm arrived broken, I'm afraid to over tighten and break where the legs clamp.
I am a home hobby-est and this is my first bike repair stand and I've only had it a week or so. It's been very handy for working on bikes. The arm will move to any position to clamp the bike and it feels very securely held when clamped. The parts tray is very handy, but I had some small screws on it and every time I picked up another part near them, they would go with the part just long enough to then fall on the floor. Need to be very deliberate in picking parts up. Overall, I'd say okay for occasional home use, but not something you would want for regular or professional use (IE several times a week).
