Who uses what work stand?
re: Wrench Force and Ultimate Pro...Akirasho

... bought one of the original Wrench Force stands back in '96 or '97... then picked up the Ultimate Pro (on sale) a couple years ago (refined design, but functionally the same)

The Ultimate Pro is worth the extra money over the Ultimate Consumer in my opinion.

We abide.

Remain In Light.

I really like my bike stand and the fact it folds up and can go to races stored in my trunk.

Also, just bought The RAKK stand for casually holding bike in an upright position in garage, these things are great! I plan to buy at least two more. Go to:

I use my CycleOps trainer as a workstand. It does most things well as long as the rear wheel is mounted.

Minoura from Nashbar, around $100 or so. If I really need it to be stable to the ground I place a 75# sand tube across the legs.

I use an Ultimate Consumer Repair Stand. I replaced the knobs to adjust the height with a couple of old quick release seatpost binders. It makes adjusting the height easy. It holds bikes great including my 35+ pound Surly Instigator Dual Slalom bike.

I used to use a Blackburn Work Horse. It worked well but you had take the front wheel off to mount the bike. You could do more or less everything except adjust the front brake. I still have it if anyone is looking for a cheap work stand.

Built my own base out of layers of 3/4" plywood, saving buku shipping dollars by not getting their metal base. The money was a little hard to scratch up a few years ago, but I am sure enough happy to have it now, and every time I use it. My only regret was not having gotten it sooner in life.

two closet-rod hangers mounted to the garage wall (fits top-tube perfectly).
