If you want one that you are going to use alot I would suggest the Ultimate Repair stands. They are cheaper than the park models and you can adjust the height so your front wheel isn't on the ground when you work on the front brake, and you can work while standing instead of crouching over. I think they are around $150 or so. If you just want a good cheap one to use for the ocassional tune-up. I would go for the Performance one that holds the bike by the BB. Works well, stable, and not too expensive ($50 I think.)

The one from Performance is called the "Spin Doctor Essentials" or somthing like that. I assembled my bike using it and it's the only stand I think I'll need. I like the idea of holding the bike by the BB (can't crush alu. tubes). The height isn't adjustable but it is ok. I got it on sale for about $35.

They're very adjustable height wise and fold up really easy. I bought mine on sale at Performance plus used my Team points. I don't think I'll need another.
