If you have a bike and want to show it off like the precious piece of art it is, use this stand!
Easy to use! When installed properly it can easily hold my XC bike (~14Kg) along with roughly 1.7 Kg of additional equipment and stuff (like filled water bottles, patch kits, mini pumps, tools, etc.) and possibly my second bike too! It also unofficially partially serves as a considerably cheaper work stand for me. The adjustable arm height allows my bikes to be displayed at various angles and also accommodates sloped toptubes. It does not scuff or damage the paint nor toptube. Unlike what most people would have you believe, Carbon bikes can be hung from it, case in point, my ~7.8 Kg 2021 BMC Teammachine SLR has had an enjoyable year hanging from the stand even with bottles and equipment.
Nevertheless, the product does have downfalls
- Sits roughly 30 cm (300mm) from the wall. (Your road bike will fit parallel to the wall, but your mountain bike - like mine - would have to have its wheel sticking out)
- If you use it as a work stand, DO NOT slam the rear bakes; your cycle will pop/fall off the stand.
- If you have particularly smooth bearings, the cycle's steerer tube can rotate and your wheel may not remain parallel.
- The cycle is in suspension, as such the bicycle oscillates a couple millimeters when my ceiling fan is at maximum speed.
