budget bike repair stand

I was wondering if any of you guys on here have use this repair stand and it a good bang for the buck repair stand. I just recently bought a Park Tool PCS9 for myself and was thinking about picking this up for my brother for his birthday.

Have you dealt with that store before? Any stand is better than no stand. Do any of your area shops have closeout/ season end sales? for the cost of the stand with shipping you might be able to get something local.

If you like the Park PCS-9, get your brother one, too. He'll love it, and you'll be a hero.

(I have a Park PCS-10, and love it. If I was going to buy one for my daughter (who wrenches her family's bikes) I'd get her a PCS-10, too.)

The more legs, the bigger the the chance of them being in the way.

I was also looking for a good bugdet repair stand recently and after much research I settled on this one. https://www.amazon.com/Aluminum-Cycle.../dp/B005KOKFR4

Definitely the best bang for the buck. Only $99 w/free shipping, works excellent, is extremely well built (made in Taiwan) and has more features than the PCS-9 and PCS-10. (such as foldable legs and comes with a magnetic tool tray)

Can be bought on Ebay as well. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Aluminum-Cyc...item3f1d554200

Its so good you might end up keeping it and give your brother the PCS-9 instead. I personally think its better and so do other people from what I've read.
