|Has anyone purchased a bike repair stand they
could recommend to me.
I have been looking at the Park Tool PCS-1 and
Park Tool PCS-4 stands. Any pros and cons about these.
If you know of any other brands please let me know.

Last I checked, it was still about $160 USD at Licktons.
Be the bike.

These go on sale occasionally for a hundred bucks, and it is hard to top the value at that price.

|I have the Park PRS 5. It is the one that folds up for portability. I like that when I travel away for centuries and the occasional MTB race. If you don't need that feature, the the PCS-4 is the same otherwise.

|A park stand is like Oakley M frames, everything else is a poor imitation.|

|I have the Consumer and am totally satisfied. Strong enough to handle our tandem. Folds easily and compactly. The Pro has a different clamping mechanism which is supposedly easier to use. The Consumer has a vice like spin handle which works very well. Clamp anything at any angle.|

|If you are on a budget, Park's 2003 model PCS-1 has adjustable height. The clamp is adjustable to 3 settings. Not a bad workstand for the money. Try www.bicyclebuys.com they had last year's model for almost dealer cost. I use it for most simple jobs and cleaning.
