I was really impressed with this stand. I have been looking for my first repair stand for some time now and generally, they seem like overpriced junk. I bought this stand sight unseen based on reviews, and am really impressed with the service and the quality. Backcountry posted it the day I bought it, and the stand arrived in Australia 3 working days later, with very reasonable freighting cost. The stand is made from alloy and is reasonably light and looks like it will withstand a lot of use. It is really well designed - it unfolds easily and is very stable. The clamp is a gem - you can place the bike in it and clamp it up straight away by sliding the ratchet mechanism closed. After this, you just need to tighten up a little more with the dial, but the stand is taking the weight of your bike as you do this. It has coped with my heavy touring/commuting bike with no problems. It folds away easily and the carry bag is great too. Very happy with the purchase.
