A very good stand and based on the daily deal price I couldn't pass it up. Very strong and stable and as others have noted it has a 'feeling' of quality about it. I expect to have this stand for a long time. My one nit so far is in the capture release mechanism, I'm getting used to it and it is very secure, but I have not mastered the art of releasing the clamp gracefully while supporting the bike. I'd give a nod to the Park style clamps (which may be less secure) but are easier to clamp un-clamp.
From a robust-ness perspective I was able to hold a pretty heavy Univega chromoly Tandem for break adjustment. There was some flex in the claw arm but nothing to worry about. For my regular bikes, with the three legs spread it is very stable.
One last note is that it collapses easily, all the parts that move do so smoothly and with reasonable dampening. Once collapsed it is easy to store.
I'd buy it again.
I have used this stand for five years now. It is reasonably light and portable, but also very stable and gentle on the bike. The quick release armjaw is incredibly and easily adjustable. Highly recommended.
This stand is great. I love the quick release features in it and it sets up in no time at all. It's not the most stable stand if you have the bike propped up in a vertical position but no portable stand is. I like this one because it's light weight. Easy setup, breakdown and allows you to get to work quickly so you don't have to spend a lot of time setting up just to maintain your bike. The clamp is great for seat posts and has a good amount of power in it. Careful tightening on top tubes is recommended (if you do clamp there).
I own a PRS-25 and purchased this for my girlfriend. If my PRS-25 went missing today, I'd buy another PRS-25 and not the Pro-Elite. Not a bad stand, but the Park stand works better for me.
I read a lot of reviews before deciding on this stand. It's everything I expected and more. I currently use it for my road bike and my full suspension all mountain Mtn Bike. I would definitely recommend this stand to any one of my friends.
Had a very old Park stand that I was afraid to use on my carbon bike. In fact I couldn't because the clamp closure was too tight for my carbon tubes, and I have no room on my seat post. So I bought the Feedback, and very happy that I did. I am rather critical of the way things are made and how user friendly they are. And the Feedback just showed up today, and right out of the box I was very impressed.
This is thing is very well made, very well engineered, with precision adjustments. There is absolutely NO assembly reguired. It's ready to go out of the box. I told my bike buddy it's built like the Hubble Telescope, with beautiful tubes, and well thought out clamps and jaw. I can't imagine anyone going wrong with this stand. The only thing it may not work for might be a tandem. But that's not my world.
Buy it, and you will be glad you did.
I use this stand for doing maintenance my by road bikes and mtn bikes. It's great because it's light weight and compact making it easy to stash into my RV when biking away from my home area. It's also very easy to mount any of my bikes onto the stand, easier than the Park Tools stand. I highly recommend it.
Stand is very well made and very adjustable. I really appreciate the tri-pod style instead of the two leg versions by other manufacturers. After choosing the stand online and purchasing in store, I under estimated the quality of the entire unit.
Only awkward function is removing the bike from the locked in position. I can see some bikes being a bit of a challenge to balance with one hand and undo the lock with the other.
I own this stand and paid more for it at my local recreational equipment provider. However, mine came with a tote bag so that may be the reason. I love the one touch button to unlock your bike and i hold my bike with one hand and use my stomach to push it in when clamping. very easy to use and convenient. It is rated up to 85 lbs and with my 30 lb touring bike its rock solid. Buy it and get the tool caddy to go with it.
