Heh. We used those stands to hold frames for brazing at Trek. Nothing like having a red-hot bike frame drop in your lap while you're working on it! To prevent this, we brazed a little metal tab to...

I wrote Park, and Calvin Jones was kind enough to respond. Apparently the small diameter part helps installation in some stands.

I seem to recall that those fit in the PCS-1 stand. The diameter and length are correct, and the PCS-1 clamping bolt will tighten on. The problem was without the groove the clamp would come out of...

I have a version of that clamp in my PRS-25 stand. It's sturdy, fits almost everything, and holds a bike well once clamped but I find them a little fiddly to use. I never use the cam action, only the...

I did some research and found that Park has a clamp that allows the cranking action of the Velo product. Can't say which is better. The Velo is nearly 200 bucks more. (100-3D is $187.50, Velo is...

Good heavens! It's nearly $400! It OUGHT to be a lot better.

If you are working on one bike, I think that the Park approach is better. You adjust a turnbuckle nut once, and then it's a quick...

My setup looks pretty much like the clamp below, if that's what your after. Larger diameter is 50mm, smaller is 19mm. Plus or minus. It's in an old Park PRS-5 stand, which I love. I think that the...

Sounds like it's about right. You need to have an impression on your hand after you tighten the quick release. As long as you can get it flipped, it's not too tight.

If you never touched them after a month of riding, then you aren't exercising good judgement either. You need to be constantly checking things. QR's, spokes, tire pressure, shifters and derailleurs...

Answers so far are pretty much par for the course. Very often new riders have no idea how to tighten a quick release. If the lever had the concave side facing out, it was your fault if you didn't...

Not common. Incorrect assembly.

The lever is a cam lever, not a wing-nut. Did you purchase the bike at a bike shop or another retailer?

I'd add wrap a rag around the freehub body before grabbing with the pliers.
