Any feelings/ experiences with Park workstands? I am specifically looking at the PCS-4 and PRS-5. I work on our road bikes, mountain bikes, and tandem, in addition to the kids bikes. Any help will be appreciated. Also the best PCS-4 price I found was 145 amd best PRS-5 was 189. Any better prices out there?

$189 is a good price for a PRS-5. I have had one for about two years without any problems. And it is very portable. Sometimes if I have a bike raised up high a little bit out of balance it teeters a little but it is a good quality tool. I do kind of like the Ultimate workstand although I do not know anyone that has one.

I have an Ultimate workstand, and it works really well. The tripod style base is a little more solid feeling than the Park stands. The only issue would be that the attachment bracket for the toolbox (sold separately) squeeks when you apply any torque on the it. You can either put a little oil where it contacts the stand, or just cut it off.

I have the PCS4 and am very pleased with it. Same clamp as the PRS 5 and the Pro stands. Base is solid enough. It just doesn't fold up like the PRS5 does. The clamp can be very important, if not the most important aspect in a stand. I don't think you can go wrong with either of these two stands you are looking at since the clamp used in both is the best Park makes.

Hope this helps.

PCS-4 is more stable than the PRS-5. Of course the PRS-5 is more mobile. After much research I went with the PCS-4. I don't plan on using mine much out of the house and therefore it seemed like the better decision. I've had it for a few months and am greatly pleased with it. I also paid $145 for mine.
