    Bike workstand - please advise

    Hi all,

    i am considering a workstand; currently using one of the simple bike stands affixed to the rear wheel and find it too flimsy for any real maintenance.

    Am considering the following 2 :-

    1) Taxc Cyclemotion Stand
    http://www.tacx.com/producten.php?fl...Motion%20Stand

    2) Topeak Prep Stand Max
    http://www.topeak.com/products/Repair/PrepStandMax

    The former one looks really sturdy, and it is foldable. I live in an apartment and the only space i have for doing bike stuff in in my balcony.

    The 2nd one looks a bit flimsy.

    Any advice?

    Thanks in advance for any input.

    I have the Topeak PrepStand Pro model, and while I do like it for features...it is a bit tippy.

    I'd go with the first one too.
