Bicycle Work Stand Sale

REI is having a Labor Day Sale from August 27 - September 6. One of the sale items is a work stand named, "Ultimate Consumer Repair Stand." Price is $119.00 regularly $150.00

Description is as follows:

Sturdy, tripod-based stand with height adjustment (40" to 67") for easy wrenching and 360 degree clutch rotation.

Anyone know of this stand?

Any opinions?

I have the Ultimate Professional Repair Stand from REI and am very pleased with it, for whatever help that does for you.

I also have the Pro stand that I purchased from REI. LOVE IT. I don't know if there is much different besides how the clamp closes and the color.

The pro clamp lets you push the clamp to the bike and then turn a knob to tighten it so it is faster to get a bike on and off the stand. Not a big thing but it adds up if your at a club ride and your trying to get 12+ bikes checked out

The pro came with a bag and it is great for travel the tripod legs work so much better than the bar style legs the Park travel stands have/had.

I think I had a 10% off coupon so went for the Pro at $119.00 the consumer stand is an outstanding value.
