Gave this stand to my sister and husband for Christmas. Their assessment, AWESOME! Not as nice as some others, but great for the price and their purposes, namely basic maintenance and repair.
For the price, this thing is great. Its not the most compact or the lightest. But it is portable. I think the weight actually adds to its stability.
Great stand for casual use. I keep one in the garage to lube chains, clean bikes, etc. for my family of 4.
