Workstand Question Need Help(5 posts)

Workstand Question Need Helpt2
Sep 7, 2002 7:33 PM
Need your advice. My brother-in-law is the biggest cycling fan I know.He is about to turn forty and we want to get him a good present. The only cycling "thing" that he does not have is a workstand. I can not find any reviews for the Park PRS-3 OS Repair Stand. Do any of you use this stand, know anything about it, or have other suggestions for a good stand.

Thanks for the help.

It can be found a bit cheaper than retail listed on the website (as low as $160).

See a semi review at http://psycle-therapy.great-ride.com/tools.htm

We abide.

That's pretty much the industry standard for bike shops. The only drawback that I can see is that it's NOT portable. The 67 pound base is sold separately.

My girlfriend got me a Park PCS 4 last spring and it is good. It has a good clamp and a stable base. It retails around 200 but you should be able to find it for 180.

I have the Park OS stand. It's top notch, but as the others mentioned, it's not portable. Perfect if you have a dedicated space for it though. Never worry about the bikes tipping over. The other Park models and the Ultimate Pro are good too. Just don't get a Spin Doctor. What a POS flimsy thing that is. My S.D. has been relegated to garage bike washing duty.
