Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good for use at home
The Park Tool PCS-10 work stand is stable and versatile. It can be folded up and stored out of the way, which makes it suitable for use at home.
Pro Clamp suitable for most bikes
The clamp jaws on this stand is 3.5 inches high, and the opening can be adjusted with a cam to fit almost any width of the seatpost tube. It's unlikely that you'll find a bike that can't be held in this stand.
Pro Very steady and stable
The PCS-10 has a 3 leg system, with two of them folding out in an L shape against the floor. You can attach any bike by the seatpost and be sure that the stand will hold it well. The stand can hold up to 100 pounds, which will do for the vast majority of bikes out there, even electric bikes.
Con Difficult to move around and store
This stand weighs 25 pounds, which is not the easiest to carry around. It also doesn't stand up by itself when folded, so you'll need to keep it either leaning against something or laying flat.
Con Difficult to adjust the clamp
There's not enough clamping force in the clamp itself, so you'll be tightening it with the handle constantly. There is a winding lever to do this, but you might be left holding a possibly heavy bike until you fidget with both the width and clamping force of the clamp.
Con Difficult to fold up
This stand has 3 buttons at the base which are difficult to press if you want to fold the legs up.
