been looking for a bikestand...

he says its an ultimate "basic" but i've never heard or seen a "basic" ultimate bike stand. i'm thinking something like a spindoctor pro g3? i just wanna get this right.

also, ultimate has that unique tripod with interlocking reinforced tubing... whereas the picture has parallel reinforced tubing

It looks like an Ultimate. It's what they used to call the Ultimate Consumer stand (as opposed to the Ultimate Pro). Same headstock as the Pro, just a bit lighter-weight tripod.

EDIT= Headstock is slightly different, I forgot: doesn't have the quick-slide clamp that the Pro had. Here it is on Ultimate's site:

Didn't it sell for just under 100$ too. I considered one for a while until Park came out with a cheapy.

I think it listed for $150. Pro was $180. They make a Recreational now with a fixed tripod for $100.

If the clamping mechanism still works smoothly I'd say yes. It's a touch under half the price of new so that's about right. Oh, and it's a better stand than the Recreational that sells for $100 now.
