|Seeing as this workstand is so cheap, it is reasonable to expect that there is a significant problem with it. Does anyone know what that problem is, or have anything to say about this workstand in general?

|That's the one that looks sort of like an upside-down Y, right (they change the name every year or two; mine's called something else)? I've had one for a couple of years, used it to build two bikes and do all my maintenance.
Works fine--it's stable, reasonably solid, you can run through the gears and do everything you need to do. Height isn't adjustable, so if you're working around the bars/seat clamp you have to stretch. I'm 6'4", so I can usually reach, but my bikes are 64cm, so sometimes I can't. There's noplace to put tools, but I set it up next to the workbench. And it folds down and leans against the wall when I'm not using it. I'd buy it again.

|I use it for a alu Trek that has an aero down tube, as well as a couple of standard steel frames. Rebuilt one of the steel bikes completely using the workstand, no issues at all. I'd buy it again, no regrets.|

|Just confirming what was said by the last two post, the work
stand is a great budget buy. I paid 34.99 at a Performance
sale a few months ago. For every day chain maintenance and
general bike cleaning it works well. I'm 6'4" so I sit on a
milk crate while I'm working on the chain,
