The Sport-Mechanic Work stand is sturdy and strong, lightweight, easy to set up and easy to put away. It will likely last for many years even with heavy use, which makes it a good investment for a committed bike mechanic. See More
This Feedback Sports stand has knobs at the base that control each of the three legs. By turning the latches on the knobs, you can fold it up tight, and stow it away in some corner. It weighs 12.8 pounds, which makes it easy to move around. Folded dimensions are 6.6 x 5 x 44.1 inches. Most other repair stands have two L shaped legs that cannot bend unless you detach them completely, so the tripod design of the Sport-Mechanic Work stand is a definite advantage over competitors.

This stand has a clamp head that can turn 360 degrees (most bike stands can do the same), but unlike the competition, the clamp is only 3.6 inches long. This allows for clamping on bikes without having to adjust the saddle height- not a big deal in itself, but a very thoughtful design feature that saves you time and effort. The design of the clamp is simple and intuitive, and it has a crank with which you can open the clamp with just a single flip. The stand can hold up to 65 pounds (most mountain bikes weigh around 40 pounds), so it will easily hold almost any bike you put in it. See More
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. See More
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. See More
