Cons Red anodized finish may fadeExpensivePlastic parts, durability issues, knobs less user friendly than competitorsExpensive, wide collapsed sizeRequires front wheel removal to mount, lots of adapters, expensive
Bottom Line This is a great work stand in every way and one of our top rated modelsIt checks all the boxes and is the best work stand we've ever usedWeight-conscious home mechanics will love this model with its built in scale and stable designIts the best Park Tool work stand we've ever used, but it still can't quite match the performance of our top rated modelsThis axle and bottom bracket mounting stand provides a solid alternative to clamping your frame
