I've been looking at the ones that the Colorado Cyclist offer, like the Ultimate and the Park repair stands. I would just like to hear some feedback from those who have experience with these brands or any others that are of quality, thanks a million!
I like the PCS-4, and CC had them for $170IAmtnbikr

Very solid, was a breeze to assemble. Nice clamp, and sure beats not having a stand to do repairs with.

I got the "cheapo" one from Performance. The bike sits on the stand and is secured just below the front waterbottle cage with a clamp. Works great for cleaning/lubing etc and folds up to sit along the wall. I think I paid about $40 for it.

Ultimate, all the way.Mel Erickson

I've got the consumer model and it's rock solid. The pro's even better, but more costly. I've used a friends Park and like my Ultimate better. Both are better than all the others. In stands, you get what you pay for.

Certain types of clamps, clamp the downtube. If you have a very thin wall tube, and many of the lighter Ti, steel and aluminum bikes do, then these clamps are not recommended by the frame manufacturers. Merlin is one example I know of. I assume that if you reef down too hard you can dent the tube. If you clamp the seat post then you will want a tall stand to move the bike up high enough to work on it.
