Recommend a Bottom Bracket-Supporting Workstand?
Hey guys, so I'm looking to buy a new stand and had the Park PRS-20 in mind because Merry Sales carries Park Tool products.
...or so I thought. Apparently they stopped distributing Park products, and they're already out of PRS-20 stands.
I'd like a stand that won't break the bank, is possibly folding, and will support the bottom bracket. I've used stands that clamp tubes/seatposts and I honestly just like the stability of bottom bracket-supporting stands more.
I started out with this addiction when the first shop I worked at had one stand, and it was an old Cinelli stand that supported the BB and clamped the fork. I've been trying to find one for years, but Cinelli hasn't manufactured a stand since before the new millennium.
So, what stand would you guys recommend?
park is really the only way to go unless you get the nashbar one. i think minoura makes one too
Hmm...I've heard good things about the Nashbar, and it's cheaper than the Park PRS-20 even without the 20% discount.
I guess I'll go with the Nashbar Elite Race stand!
I have one made by Topeak. Folds down to about 7"x3"x1.5". do not have it in hand to check the number, but I think I found it by doing a Google search for "colapsible bike stand".
I did a search for topeak bike stand and found it. "Topeak Flash Stand". $27.52 with free ship.
