I acted the first time you posted it. I also found a 10% coupon on this site so I ended up getting the stand for abouto $129 plus tax and shipping. It arrived last Wednesday.
Just watch how you clamp it (in bathroom)....nmBrooks

... the stand was reviewed with several others... and received a rating of 10 with a dislikes of none...

I've been using this and it's predecessor for years (this'll make my third) with nary a complaint (thus my semi joke about one for the bathroom (one for the truck, one for the basement, one for quality wrenching at crap time)).

Does it clamp to the TT or the seat post? Or either one?

I've heard it's better to clamp to the seat post rather than top tube. True?
... either...Akirasho

... though the seatpost/seat tube is recommended if at all possible (I've got a Cervelo P2K with an aero post and seat tube... so the top tube works better for light duty). Because of the clutch mechanism, it's easier to adjust clamping pressure than on many other systems (still, there are risks but it is an alternative)...

i've been using it for 3 years, have taken it out of town, used it at races, etc.--no problems. i'm not easy on equipment. this is a good price, as the price for this model has wavered very little (5% or less) since i purchased it.

highly recommended, if you have the need for a good, quality, portable workstand.

fwiw.
