Just getting a Santana Fusion. Are there any restrictions on which Park work stands will work? I am concerned because of the bike size, weight and oversize tubing. Thanks for any responses.

I've got a Performance Spin Doctor Pro that works fine as long as I keep all the clamps tight. It folds up to a resonable size too.

My general suggestion would be to buy the best workstand you can afford. It will last forever so you'll never need to buy another.

This comes up on Tandem & Hobbs periodically. I'm always surprised at the number of responses.

Standard practice for most mainttenance is to support the bike by the stoker seat post with the front wheel on the floor. To service the front brakes, people support the front bottom bracket using a variety of objects.

I used to support the bottom bracket with a jack stand, but my jack stands disappeared when my sons moved out. Now I use a home made stand that I fabricated from a 2X4.
