Strength:

weight, durable, compact ease of use, materials

Weakness:

none, I have the consumer so it is possible the upper grade has a quicker clamp mech. but mine is fine

Really nice stand. Never any problems, really easy to set up, compact and light. I should and will buy soon the handle bar keeper and possible the tool tray. Really terrific product that I give un reserved recomendation for anyone.

Strength:

It works as advertised when it is not broken.

Weakness:

Plastic parts. Plastic main clamp.

This stand works exactly as described. Unfortunately, this may not be for long -- depending on how much you use it. I use it perhaps 10 times a year. My main complaint is with the "telescoping boom" clamp. It is plastic, and I was suspicious from the beginning. Sure enough, it split in two, leaving me to improvise a remedy. You get what you pay for. If you want a high quality stand, look elsewhere and pay for it.

Strength:

Under $100 for a repair stand. Strong, stable and cool design.

Weakness:

For under $100, I can deal with not having height adjustments.

I wanted a repair stand to work on my bike, but I really did not want to spend $200 on a "glamorized" tripod. I am not going tobe building bikes 24/7. I needed something cheap and dependable. In comes the BRS-50R from Ultimate Support at well under $100.

Out of the box, it is ready to use. Well, remove all the plastic baggie things. The locking pin locks the legs closed for storage. Pull the pin out, rotate, place the pin back in and you are ready. the designand function of the legs are really nice. You might need to wiggle the pin and legs to get it to lock in, but once in, the stand is really stable.

The clamp is simple as well. Just loosen the knob, position the 360 degree clamp, tighten knob. The design is so simple, and so easy to use, you can pretty much ignore this and the previous paragraph.

I am amazed at how easily the clamp holds a bike without tipping. The only difficult thing I find is the act of clamping the bike on to the stand. This is only because I am a small guy and not that strong. Lifting a 30 pound bike with one hand and trying to spin tight the clamp with the other is kinda hard for some one as weak as me. If you are somewhat in shape, you should have no problem.

Once you have the bike on the stand, it holds any bike very well for building, washing, repairs or just as a display stand. The quality of materials and construction is top notch.

When closed, the 'hockey stick' design makes it nearly impossible to stand on its own without a wall or better yet a corner to lean on. I just store it flat, and it lays flat very well. Heck for under $100, you can buy another one just to hold and store your first one.

Strength:

Build quality, bang for your buck!

Weakness:

Not height adjustable - this isn't bothersome at all to me.

This purchase was $99 well spent. Since I ordered this product online, I was a little worried about the quality of workmanship and materials - not many repair stands available at this price point. When I opened the box my fears were relieved. This is a high quality product. The die cast spinner clamp is secure, easy to operate and rotates. The stand folds for storage and sets up without tools, the tripod type legs are secured by inserting a key into a slot - brillant. If you're looking for a stand and don't want to blow a wad of cash, look no further.

Strength:

Stable, strong

Weakness:

lack of height adjustability.

I bought this to build my bikes and maintain them, so I knew I would only be using once in a while. So far, I've used it to build two bikes, and I could never have done so without this stand. I store my main bike in the stand, and I'm constantly tweaking adjustments, playing with it. This stand is an excellent value for a beginner or for someone who is interested in maintaining their own bike at an affordable cost. The one minor drawback is that there is limited adjustability. But this isn't really much of a factor when you are working on your own stable of bikes.
