Based on these pictures would you recommend this bike stand for my Trance 1? Does it look stable or should I look elsewhere for the price?

Price is roughly $150 US dollars.

Looks strong, has nice long feet to hold the weight of the bike, has a decent looking clamp and tool table and is nicely priced so I say go for it, just remember to post a pic of your bike in the stand when you get it.:thumbsup:

The only place that it will clamp on is the seat post? I was looking at the Trance 1 frame today and if I were to clamp it on the frame it will touch the cable wires...is this ok?

FWIW, many are of the opinion that it is better to clamp to the seat post anyway -- just to make sure you do not damage the seat/top tubes.

That stand will certainly work as a BIKE stand, even for the heaviest free ride bike. It even might be sturdy enough to use as a WORK stand, depending on what kind or work you are doing on the bike.

Things it won’t be stable enough for …

Threading and facing a bb shell, or head tube.
Reaming a seat tube.
Straightening a frame. (But should be Ok for aligning dropouts.)

Pretty much any other assy and adjustments should be handled easily with the addition of a couple of sand bags on the legs.
