I'm brand new to this forum. I'm very pleased to be here. I look forward to learning about bikes, almost as much as I look forward to my next ride.
I come with a question. Someone has given me a used bike stand, a Park PRS-6 single arm repair stand. I'm delighted to have a free bike stand -- I'd been making do without. But I'm a little puzzled, because the stand does not appear to be very adjustable.
I refer specifically to the central post -- and I'm making up that term; it probably has an actual name. It's the steel post attached to the base. It does not appear to be adjustable. I can't raise it or lower it.
Am I wrong in thinking bikes should typically be fitted onto a stand on the seat post? This is what I've done, but the front wheel touches the floor. It's still useable, but there's gotta be a better way.
My bike is a steel frame Bianchi. Is it okay do attach it to the stand via the top tube?
Any insights will be valuable.
Thanks in advance!
