This thing is pretty handy. Short of a fully decked workbench with pegboard or a foam insert toolbox of course, this gets you started with some basic organization options. Especially handy if itï¿½s used in a semi permanent state. I will still fold up the legs partially in order to bring the stand in and out of my garage when itï¿½s nice out, and this tray doesnï¿½t impede that.
My biggest gripe with this tray, and itï¿½s pretty significant, is the weird U hook that it uses to wedge on to the main stanchion. in order to put the tray in a usable position, this hook protrudes ride into where your pedals want to go. Itï¿½s hard to avoid hitting it when turning the cranks if you have any sort of wider platform pedals (road and narrower xc pedals less of an issue) even if you move the bike up or down (as you know the cranks span roughly a 340mm distance +/- the length of the pedal body). It gets really really annoying and I wish they would resolve the issue with a new piece.
The only other gripe I have is that the somewhat diminutive size is more suited to just a handful of tools, and quick jobs. Mine quickly gets overwhelmed with rags tools and random bits from the bike, but that says more about my organizational style or lack thereof.
It fits great on my bike rack. I do forget it's there though and have washed by bike several times on the stand and ended up flooding my tray with water. But luckily, the built-in drain does help with that a bit. :)
My main gripe is a lack of tool holes for larger tools. For example. I can't put my Park Tool torque wrench in the holder anywhere so it just flops around in the main body of the tray. I guess depending on your specific tool setup, it might or might not be an issue for you. But that's really the only complaint I have.
I had purchased this tray on a whim while purchasing a new work stand and truing stand. This has been super handy for holding tools, parts, and beer conveniently nearby while I work. It was worth every penny.
Very happy with this. It is much more useful than the tray for Park Work Stands. All of the typical tools, like hex wrenches, fit and store nicely. I've owned both Park and Feedback stands and because of this tray, I like the Feedback stand more.
I'm using this tray with the Feedback Pro Elite repair stand. It mounts securely without any tools or hardware. Assorted slots help to organize allen keys, and other tools. It comes in really handy for keeping small parts within reach. It needs to be positioned high enough so that it doesn't get hit by the pedals if you are rotating the cranks. That is easily accomplished by sliding the tray up andor rotating it.
The Feedback stand folds easily, but this must be removed every time. It's not as easily attacheddetached as it could be.
