About this deal

This is, overall, the best tow bar carrier available - for ease of fitting and use, ergonomics, satisfaction. He’s since been indoctrinated into gravel riding and more recently has taken to the dark art of mountain biking. The Sprint's mount can accommodate both front and rear axles, while the Prepstand X can only manage front axles. The Park Tool models have a slightly smaller adjustment range, although we found that they generally offered enough for any repair or adjustment we needed to make. If you find yourself working on different bikes and frame shapes take another look at our top choice Feedback Sports Pro Mechanic HD.

Interesting build videos, however, I would be very leery of using these for anything but a very lightweight E-Bike. Simply grab the bike and rotate it in the stand, and the clamp will pop over to the next indexed position. There’s a huge variety of bike stands to choose from, ranging from the unbelievably cheap to the eye watering expensive. Just hold the back brake, grab the handlebars and walk backwards to lever the bike onto the rear wheel. While you'll pay a premium to own the Pro Mechanic HD, its durability and user-friendliness will not disappoint.

While we loved most things about the PrepStand Pro, it lost a little ground to the competition due to the additional knob turning required to make adjustments to the clamp and clamp arm. The folding clamp arm locks into place with 360 degrees of rotational adjustment and a very user-friendly hand crank clamp design.

In bikes where the top tube is completely round, you may need more clamping force which could be risky. This durable, lightweight bike stand provides a space-saving, reliable solution for secure bike storage. Its compact design makes for easy setup and storage, so you can quickly and conveniently stow your bicycle.The stability of a repair stand will depend on it’s footprint, it’s height, how heavy your bike is, and very importantly: how you’ve attached the bike to the stand.

The clamp is easy to use, with a wide opening that can fit even the fattest frames and it can be rotated through 360° (like all bike stands) to ensure you can manoeuvre the bike in any position you like. Paying for the well-thought-out design and high-quality components is an investment against future frustration. We tested each stand over the course of several months, mounting everything from carbon and aluminum mountain bikes, road, and gravel bikes, even e-bikes, BMX, and beach cruisers. Benson has lived in the Lake Tahoe area for the past 19 years and is a year-round mountain athlete, backcountry skiing in the winter and mountain biking in the warmer months. We've covered what is available on the market, but if you're handy with tools and are looking for a project beyond the bike repair itself, then making a DIY stand is totally possible.The range varies between the different models, but they all offer about 15 or more inches of adjustment. While Feedback has vastly improved the clamp over older designs, the fact that it clamps the seatpost at the sides holds it back, as does the fact it isn't friendly with aero seatposts. My stand is rated for the weight of the bike (around 25kg), but it seems to me quite 'risky' to attach this bike by the seatpost.

Both of these stands held bikes securely in place in testing but took considerably more time and effort to get a bike mounted than the clamping-style stands. If you don’t take care to get the centre of gravity right when you’re clamping your bike into the stand, it doesn’t matter how stable the stand is, your bike won’t be, and it could well topple over. From the ease of setup, height and angle adjustments, the clamp, stability, and portability, there is plenty to think about. I’m going to divide those looking for a bike repair stand into two distinct groups: weekend and daily mechanics. All the fixings required to install into any timber or masonry (concrete/brick) surface are also provided.

These types of stands have large curved jaws that clamp around the seatpost, seat tube, or top tube of your frame.
