I just ordered a new stand - Park Home Mechanic Bike Repair Stand from Niagra @$155ish + 16+ for shipping. Looks very good and sturdy. Niagra is close by and had the best price, so I'll know soon how it is and post results then.
<edit> This is the model up from the above poster's.
Update. It was $155 including the FedEx shipping from Niagra Cycle. The directions for putting it together were almost worthless, but it wasn't rocket-science. It requires 2 hex-wrenches and one flat box wrench for assembly, and they are included. It's quite sturdy/stable. The clamp is excellent and easy to use. Although pictures don't show this, it leans forward on it's central axis so it's a lot more stable than a picture would indicate. It's beefy - weighing about 20 pounds. Very nice indeed - much better than I expected. I'd suggest that if you are looking at the PCS-9 - wait until you can spring for the PCS-10. Much more professional feel to it (I've used a plethora of repair-stands) and it says "I'm for real" all over it.
If you buy it and can't figure out the assembly, drop me a note.
