Good cheap work stand?

I'm looking for a decently priced work stand for a mountain bike, one with a stable platform so I can also trust it to store the bike unattended and not tip over.



I'm kinda looking for one like this but something tells me that cost a lot of money.

I bought this one recently:

I would prefer a clamp-style one, but for $40 it works pretty well.

The one you pictured is about $175. How "cheap" are you looking for?

I'm looking for ~$100

Maybe if I can get away with something $75 that would be good.

Easy. Park PCS-9 on eBay, brand new, for $49 plus $30 shipping. The seller is very reputable, and the stand is more than adequate. Plus, it's a Park.

I've been using the PCS-9 for a few years and have been very happy with it. It's stable, yet doesn't take up as much floor space as the three leg tripod-type stands. I use the stand almost daily and don't know why I would need anything fancier for home wrenching.

I just set it up and started using it. I am very impressed thus far. It holds the bike very well, and I am not nervous about crushing or damaging any frame parts. The only downside I could see is doing headset work (or other things that involve taking off the fork).

Looks good, thanks for the link.
