...go to your LBS. See that Park repair stand in their shop area? OK, now go to another LBS. See THAT Park repair stand? Get the picture?

I wouldn't trade my Park repair stand for anything else.

I have used a Park PCS-1 stand to service and repair my home fleet for over a year. Sturdy, stable and folds when not in use. Damn good piece of equipment!

I checked them all out and bought an Ultimate Pro. In fact I bought two of them and the friend that I bought the second for renegged so I have one brand new in the box for sale I'm getting ready to put it on Ebay but I'll sell it direct if interested.

I'm not bashing Park, but just cuz you see them at LBS doesn't make them the best stands for everyone or every situation (remember that shops don't operate on the same economic scale as most of us).

I bought my first stand back in '96 when they were marketed under the Wrench Force name... I bought my second on a year or so ago... the design and construction are virtually identical. Both stands are still going strong.

Portable, adjustable (both rotation and height... tripod feet provide good stability, but do offer a minor trip hazard), good clamping mechanism (on the Pro model) and weight capacity (holds my 'bents).

Occasionally, these stands can be found on sale from less than traditional sources such as REI or Campmor.

I've used my Ultimate work stand for about two years and am very happy with it. It folds up small, is lightweight and very sturdy although you have to be careful around the tripod legs. The tripod legs are a huge benefit if you ever have to wrench on uneven terrain or even soft sand.
