Bought Ultimate Elite Pro Workstand/Questions
I just bought this highly rated work stand & had some questions about it to those of you that also have it. With the bike on it in a typical position it leans inward slightly, but I suppose this is normal due to the flexing of the telescoping tubes & the clutch of the head not engaging evenly. The ratcheting clamp is not quite the easy one touch release I imagined. I find the push button release only works well as long as the jaws aren't clamped real tight, but then the bike can still slip in them. If clamped tight enough where it feels like a good grip the push button release require alot more force to disengage the jaw. Is this normal?
What kind of work would not be suitable for workstands like this? It's my first one where before I would just do maintenance with the bike against a wall or upside down on seat & handlebars. I imagine anything requires alot of torque would not work well like BB, crank arms, & pedals.
