Bought the BikeHand stand off eBay. $129.

It's "solid". Steel and aluminum construction. No plastic.

The only complaint... while the calipers are laterally adjustable (i.e. they slide side-to-side to make sure they're correctly centered, read: "they'll work to dish the rim"), they don't come centered from the factory, and after inquiring with BikeHand, there is an alighnment gauge YC-512N-CG needed to properly adjust the calipers to center.

Sure... mount a wheel, flip it over multiple times to to adjust to the correct "center", but the point of having a stand like this is to NOT have to do this "old-skool" type stuff. "Yeah, but it's only the one time..."

Or... have a wheel you KNOW is properly disned to use to initially set up the centering of the calipers.

Otherwise... "good value".
