    A Good C&L Score!

    No, not a bike score, but still a good score for my C&V bikes. It was a PCS-4 Park Tool Stand in like new condition. The seller said make offer. I was completely honest in telling that seller that money is real tight, I can only offer $40. I told him I know the stand is worth more, and I wish him luck with his sale.

    The seller replied back, thank me for my kindness and honesty, and told me that he going to hold out for more. I replied back, I didn't blame him, and the stand is worth much more. The next day, he emailed me to come get it. He rather somebody like me have it.. It is a Park Took PCS-4 Tool Stand is excellent condition. I would give this a 9 with 10 being new.

    This stand sells on Amazon for $245 at dicount with msrp being at $362!!

    I am starting off the New Year C&V style!!

    Congrats on your good fortune.

    I use the same stand at home, and a portable Park stand at the cabin.

    You'll never have to buy another stand, as they are overbuilt in my opinion.

    Nothing like a good stand to make life easier.

    May many great bikes find their way into its cradle!

    Excellent score! I'm hoping to find one in the horizon.

    Every time on the mechanics forum someone debates what is the best budget price workstand out there, I always post: "think used". This makes a great example! Well done.

    Now keep your eyes out for some used tools!

    Good score on that 'cehoward'. I went for years wanting a nice bike stand and finally coughed up enough to buy an 'Ultimate' stand. Real pretty red and black one. Exactly one week later my boss (who knows I ride) gives me a Park pcs-1 stand he got from his sister for free.

    Enjoy

    I'm looking for a good stand, was thinking of getting one where the bike rests and is clamped on top. But I'm open to getting one similar to your. Does a stand like that leave any scuff marks on the paint of the top tube, where it grips?

    You might have used up all your bike karma for the year scoring that

    Looks almost shop-quality, there - nice one!

    I saw one on New Years Eve locally for $60, but I was so doggone sick I couldn't get out of the house to even check it out. Oh, well...

    Enjoy!

    Assume it will - and simply wrap the jaws in an old T-shirt or shop rag. Sorted!

    Still got it, and I use it in the garage. But, the PSC-4 is the chit!! and for $40...

    Nope, and I think most of us used something in between the clamp and the bike just for insurance..

    Great deal, and it's a nice bookend to the ethics and morality thread further down the page. If I had waited to buy a good bikestand used, I'd still be waiting, I think; I've seen only two or three advertised in the past three years and they were gone before I got to them. Instead, I bought a new, expensive Feedback on the advice of the BF high rollers here.

    My wife just alloted me a one of the bedrooms for my bikes!!

    That is how she got the bikes out the kitchen..

    Anyway, that stand is in the middle of that bike-bedroom and it cradles the bike I will ride that day..

    BTW, now I have a stand in the kitchen, the garage, and the bike-bedroom...

    One in the kitchen? And in a bike bedroom?!? Yeah, life is most definitely good.
