I would buy the stand again.


Random Thoughts

  • The Pro Classic model is essentially the same stand with quick releases on the tripod and height adjustment. It comes in a nice looking red color

  • The Pro Elite also offers a quick release head for the clamp.

  • Stand will hold up to 65 lbs.

  • Tripod is very stable when full extended. Make sure the bike is secure and stable before beginning any service or repair.

  • Carrying bag is an option, but I did not see it necessary.

  • Watch your fingers when opening and closing the tripod. I did manage to get my fingers pinched when not paying attention.
