Once you get into that price range, if you can handle a stand that is not portable, its tough to beat a PRS1 or PRS2 stand. I picked up my PRS2 stand used, its great.

Hi Neighbor,

That's an excellent stand, and far superior to the old-tymey PRS1 clamp stands, since you can put bikes with aero tubes and carbon posts in it. It's also easy to do maintenance like torquing a bottom bracket. Good choice.

I found found that Topeak has a similar model and about the same price as the prs 20. I linked to the wrong one, the 20 was the one I was looking at.

I was skeptical about the strap holding the bike firm. but it really holds the bike in place. You won't be disappointed

On the portable front, I prefer my Spin Doctor Pro stand over the general Parks stands, and I picked it up used, so the price was attractive.
