Park PCS-9 Stand

I'm looking for a stand and was wondering the pros and cons of the Park PCS-9 work stand?

I have one. The only issue that I have on occasion is that the rotating arm occasionally gets stuck, and I need to whack it with a rubber mallet to get it to rotate again. A little lubrication would probably help that. :-)

Use a PRS-20 style like the pros do so you don't have any danger of damaging the bike when clamping. Read down a few questions.

Looking at the bikes the OP has, there's pretty much zero chance of damaging them in any way, shape, or form with a PCS-9. And at half the cost, well...

I have a PCS-9. It's ok and very basic.

I have the PCS-10 as I wanted the quick release on the clamp. It is a great stand and worth the extra money IMHO. It is available at Bike Island for $135 w/ free shipping.
