The Home Mechanic Repair Stand offers Park Tool quality in an entry-level repair stand for home mechanics. The 3-point leg system and adjustable height (from 39 to 57 inches) create a stable, ergonomic repair station for easy, efficient wrenching. Plus, the great clamp fits seatposts and frame tubes from 7/8 to 3 inches in diameter, has replaceable protective rubber jaws and rotates 360 degrees for easy access to all parts of your bike. It will also clamp round and aero seatposts. This stand even folds to 41 inches for easy portability and storage.
I use this on a mt. bike with a reverb seat post (means I do not have a ton of clamping surface). The clamp is great. Large enough to do the job, but small enough for the post. I have had it a few weeks and I am super pleased.
I was concerned about the stability and considered the tripod design. The guys at the shop felt this would work well for me and they were right! Great advice.
A little bummed that the price on online front the shop was significantly lower than the price in the shop - but the guys have helped me a ton and it was worth it to support the local bike shop!!
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
