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?

Thank you.
Like mine a lot, especially for the pricecory

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.
mine works fine..dotkaye

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,
