    DIY.

    You can work on any frame design out there with the Park PCS-9 repair stand. Between its 360-degree rotating head and its screw-down clamp, there’s always a frame tube or seatpost to clamp to. And, with the height adjustment, it doesn’t matter how tall you are or what part of the bike you’re wrenching on, it will always be a comfortable, if not simple, adjustment.

    • 360-degree rotating head
    • Screw-down clamp
    • Adjustable height
    • Collapsible legs

    Great!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great home mechanic stand! Super easy to put together and take with you on the go. I've been using a Voile strap to tie the legs - easier to transport.
    Only slightly unstable with upward movements - wants to tip backwards. But otherwise super stable and awesome! Highly recommend.

    At-home maintenance

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I bought this stand as a gift for my boyfriend to use for basic at-home maintenance and cleaning, and he loves it, and my brother has had one for a few years and loves his as well. I've seen it used for both road bikes and for mountain bikes, and for the price, it's really solid and so much better than spending a few hours hunched over a frame and trying to hold it up at the same time. Park Tool makes really dependable stuff, and this is another budget-friendly win from the brand that makes quick fixes at home a lot more enjoyable.

    It works

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This stand it a bit flimsy and bows under the weight of a mountain bike. It also does not pack up particularly well and the main bar slides around when it is collapsed. It gets the job done (and is sooo much better than not having a stand), but is rather unremarkable.

    Great Bike repair stand

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This stand is very easy to put together and holds your bike very secure. its easy to adjust the height and sturdy enough work work or wash your bike. For the price you cant go wrong.

    great and simple

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Not 5 stars because I've used other, better stands. This however is great if you're on a budget and have limited space. It will allow you to work on mt bikes or rd bikes without any issue.

    Great stand for the money

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Amazing stand for the money, I love that it packs up fairly nicely and I can throw it in the car and take it to the trails, and bike park with me. Holds all of my different bikes from DH to XC to my DJ. Love it!

    Great basic repair stand

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This stand is very easy to put together and it only took 5-10 minutes. It seems pretty durable so far and it holds both my mountain and road bikes perfectly. It is a basic stand so your bike is pretty much fixed at one height with not a lot of adjustments.

    Perfectly adequate.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This works great for simple repairs and cleaning at home. So much better than trying to lean your bike up against a fence or something especially when working on the drive train. Awesome price point for a solid entry level stand from a reputable company.

    PCS-9

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Pretty easy to put together since there's only six pieces. It can hold my 25 pound bike in any position you please. I've already done some slight derailleur adjustments with it and having this stand, or any, makes working on bikes so much easier. For the price I can't find anything better than this out there. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a entry level stand. As far as I'm concerned I don't see why you would spend more when this gets the job done for less.

    BASIC Repair Stand

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I was very happy to see a more affordable option for bike stands and I have been happy with other Park Tool products I have purchased. The material is strong and sturdy while the overall assembly is pretty basic. I think the clamp is perfect as it is very easy to rotate from a horizontal to vertical position and anywhere in between while also controlling how tight you close it down on your seat post or bike tube.

    Now for the 2 stars. The base of the unit where the leg assembly slides down and locks with the push button does not work properly. Once the stand is holding weight, any force applied by myself on the bike will cause the leg assembly to unlock the push button by sliding right over the top of it and the legs begin to slide up the vertical tube of the stand.

    I may try to file the small hole opening where the push button should be locking because it seems to taper open on the inside of the hole allowing the button to easily be pushed in. I am hoping this fixes it, otherwise the stand is almost unusable.

    Exactly What I was Looking For

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The PCS-9 is perfect for the home mechanic - it's easily adjustable and sturdy enough to not move around when you're torquing down a crankset.

    I was able to find the sweet spot with the tightness of the rotating clamp and the pinch bolts of the telescoping pole, and now I can rotate the bike on two axis while it's in the stand, without becoming cumbersome or moving when I don't want it to. Raising and lowering the stand height is difficult, though.

    Even as someone who used to work in a bike shop with Park Tool's Professional bike stands that weigh nearly 100lbs and cost about $400, I'm perfectly satisfied with the PCS-9.

    Nice sturdy stand

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the first stand our family got, and still the only one that lives in the garage. Simple, sturdy, and heavy so it doesn't tip over when bumped from its middle of the garage position. The top bar is nice and long with no extra nonsense for holding rags, chains and such. May never upgrade.

    Easier to work than to be on the floor.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If your serious about maintaining your bike by yourself, you'll need this. Since I have the stand, repairing and maintaining the bike it's easier than before. I love this stand, very simple to use, good quality and great to storage. It is the entry level but don't be fooled by this. Adjusting the derailleurs had been a walk in the park, you shift and adjust, very simple. No more back pain.

    Your back will thank you

      If you usually do your mechanical work at home and don't have a mechanic stand, this is the stand to get. This is the entry level stand. The stand is adjustable in height, and the arm can be rotated for more comfort. It is also very easy to carry and store. The quick release clamps are very useful and easy to set-up. It sure doesn't feel like the weight is 23 lbs, but the tool is very sturdy. Easy to assemble.

      Make sure to put a rag on the main clamp so it doesn't scratch your bike. Also, make sure you tighten the quick release clamps.

      Your basic stand

        This is your entry level basic stand. The quality is good enough for everyday home usage. The clamping mechanism is the "screw-in" type and wont be the same as those you see used in bike shops. This clamp is not upgradable. Holding the bike up and getting the clamp tightened takes a bit of time. The stand is study; but is heavy. The legs fold up, but the clamping arm doesn't, so dont expect it to fold into a small package.

        Overall, a good stand for those who will occasionally use it for basic maintenance. If you plan to work on your bike on a daily basis, consider a stand with a different clamping mechanism

        Best Answer

        Stands will vary on price depending on how heavy duty they are. A lesser expensive stand will be a little thinner tubing, and also not quite as stable for really cranking down on the bike. For most home work projects a stand like this is sufficient and will work well. Feedback also makes a comparable stand at the same price.
